What's full bump look like now?
This is full bump. It's tight. There is very light contact in a couple spots.

The good news is that at full stuff, full lock, I can still spin the tire by hand at street pressure.

This means I can now install the front Foxes with a good chance of getting a near 50/50 split. That is what I was hoping for with all of this work.

A few pics of the track bar mount brace.

It's a double adjustable link with clevis ends. The link is lengthened to load up the track bar mount a bit. Then the ends are clamped down to create a solid connection.

I added this brace because I cracked the old mount twice and because I'm not a great weldor by any measure.

And here is how the bumps line up now.

This is why I had been thinking about moving the axle side spring seats backwards on the tube. But now I think the the plan is to move the frame side forward. The work is much easier since I am removing most of the shock mount anyway. And I can't see any interference issues by doing so. Maybe I can even improved the packaging a bit. We shall see!
