    yesterday some guys were discussing axle placement after the swap. someone suggested mounting the front under the bodymount and leaving the rear where it is. if i did that would my axle be about where it is now? and do i need it to be forward to clear 39.5 tires? i guess i could answer part of that once i get my springs but they're not here yet. thanks

    the problem you will run into is the shackle hitting the body mount if you run the rear is the stock location ... you will of course also have to extend the rear shackle to make up the extra distance.
