what's your hand in your pocket <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
you know that your an addict now 38's will only suit your fix for a little while and the next thing you know youll be hooked on 39.5's 40's 42's where does the madnees end
it's not to late to get help but you have to take the first step towards recovery ..

off the subject, How far did you move your front axle forward???</STRONG>
lol, i forgot your an fj owner now. well i offset drilled the center hole about an inch and half and the shackle reversal moved it about another 2-3 and if i remember corectly i flipped the springs too which is another 2. so id say 4-5 inches and the rear is back 1.5 inches too! jiMMy FJNOTCJ
