    I was going to do just the plain ole 1 inch blocks... but now I think I will also move the axle forward 1 1/2 inches. Does this cause any problem with cross over steering? Does the move forward of the axle bring it too close to anything in the front of the wheel? What about the rear?

    And anyone have any links to new cross members to help avoid interferance with the steering?

    Thanks
    Ken H.

    Moving forward works fine with crossover, 1" movement is really common, 1.5 should be pretty easy. Our draglinks are bent to provide clearance for the crossmember and I do recommend a bit of drop in the draglink to help keep the draglink end angles flat. If not the MOO crossmember on the main page would work.
