Off center rear spring mounting?


I have a truck leaf spring that has the rear axle mount off center toward the front of the spring.

So I was just wondering if there is a reason for this?

Like better handling, spring wrap or just done to better position its mounting points?

In my case it would be nice to move my front mounting point back a little.

I use any spot on the spring flat area approx 4-6 inches. just center the wheels in the hole and let the big mop flop!!!!!
