    What exactly do you mean you don't know what to do with it?

    Look on Pirate or Binderplanet. Use the search function, and you're sure to find tons of threads on the subject.

    Grind the housing down until it is round, then fab a spring perch, and weld it on.

    Dan over at Ruffstuff Specialties keeps spring perches for d44s and the 2" wide scout springs in stock. I just ordered a pair yesterday
