    Do I have to worry about my 44s hitting the springs or the frame? I assume I do, but how much?

    I run a Dana 60 up front, and there is only a little backspacing, cause I had to grind the calipers a lot to make the 15 inch rims fit.

    I want the tires to tuck under as much as possible, to help me fit and follow those damn little jeeps.

    I dont think they will hit the frame or springs, but maybe the firewall

    Steering box, firewall, radiator support, springs. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Fenders too if you aren't able to cut enough. You might hit less if you run more than 7" of lift though (that's what I got) /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I know I am gunna hit the firewall. I will deal with it until I can get the axle moved forward over the winter.

    Forgot about the radiator support. Going ot have to figure that out.

    How will I hit the steering box? It is inside the frame.

    I am worried about the spprings with the offset I have.
