56 3100 C notch frame. Is in necesarry?

So is it necessary to c notch the frame when flipping the rear axle on top of the springs on a 56 chevy pickup 3100? I plan on using the stock leaf pack and shackles. I have already tore it apart and without the weight of the cab, bed, etc.... I cant really get an accurate measurement to see how it will sit. Any help is greatly appreciated.

In most cases, yes. You will only have about an inch of up travel.

Here is a picture of one with air bags I did about a year ago. You can see the C notch, about 2", on the right side of the frame. The suspension is the stock springs, with only two leaves left, and a Caltracs type of traction bar.
