would your calipers be on the front side of the axle now?

I know they can be bolted on opposite sides. I was just out in the garage looking at it and from some quick measurements the spindle seems to mount in the centerline of the ball joints which is important. The only issue i see is getting your ackerman correct when building the hightsteer arms. It's not to difficult to do if your are ok at math and have some patience to graph everything out. I suggest googling ackerman and doing your research to figure out what it should be for your vehicle. Realize that your tie rod will be shorter on the back side of your axle than it will be on the front side once you build in the proper ackerman, depending on what type of ram setup you want to do it may get difficult to stuff everything in there and have your geometery correct. If you can make something like this work you may be able to run a wider axle with more wheel backspacing to protect the calipers that would now be mounted on the front like the op mentioned. The only proplem i see with that is now unless you run a smaller tire your sai may get pretty far out, which will eat up ball joints quickly. I guess it boils down to how much street time the rig will see vs offroad time.
