Default RS rear shackle hole location.

So gents. I've got this set up front fangs are welded in solid.

Leaf springs are in with a rear axle under the perches just for mock up as I have not got the pass side perch cut to 3" yet.

My big question is can I just wrap a couple 10k lb straps around this and crank the leaf springs up by 2" or so to mimmick the weight of the front of the scout II on it?

My engine/ trans are sitting on separate stands. Xfer case is in my basement and I really want to have the frame all prepped and ready to go before I wire wheel it all down and paint it up.

So I know in the instructions it states to load and jounce the suspension but unless I can use straps to do that I can't really do that.

Here is what I have now:

This is with no weight on it other than a bare frame.

So is there a general hole location for the rear shackle that you would normally drill with stock leaf springs?

Kind of like this picture I stole from here:
