I redrilled my perches to move the axle foward by 1 1/4". My 36's rubbed my pitman arm alot and now my 35's barely kiss it, if you have the stock steering that is. How 'bout the same method put to use in the rear?
I'd like to lessen the rear spring overhang some and maybe get some better travel with the axle closer to the center of the spring. Anyone done that mod? I know I need the longer springs (A.O.R.'s), but I'm gonna have to wait till spring for that. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

I figure 4" forward. Just did my SAS and used toy rears and the axle is directly under the original IFS upper shock mount.

Mines forward about 1.5"-to-2", by mounting the spring hanger forward.
And if i ever need it to be moved forward more ill re-drill my spring perches.

I moved my front forward 1.25" then I moved the rear back 1.75" I redrilled the front perch and welded 1/8" plate to my rear blocks. Then drilled new center holes. It made for a 70 degree approach and departure angle on my 79 w/35"tslsx's.
