Question moving nova springs inboard

Hi,
I'm starting work on the rearend in my 67 nova. The biggest tire I can fit is a 205-60-R15 . So, I need to move the rear leaf springs inboard and possibly narrow the rearend. I've looked at competition engineering's subframe connectors, both bolt-in and weld-in. I like the idea of bolt-in connectors but supposedly they don't allow you to move the springs inboard. The weld-ins on the other hand allow you to move the springs inboard but they say they must be used with CE's formed rear frame rails. My rear frame rails are perfect and I'd hate to have to cut them out just to move the springs in a few inches. What can I do? What are my options?

Thanks!

There was a kit to move JUST the hangers and springs. I installed one in a friends 70 Nova. I believe it was Moroso but I could be wrong. It was 10-12 years ago and not my car.
