    i know the 52" front spring swap relocates the front axle forward. 2 inches? if i used a zero rate as well to further move front axle forward would that cause any problems? crossover steering by the way thanks!

    Not speaking from personal experience but sapper just did it and ended up pulling off the zero rates due to pinion angle, it being 3 or so inches forward and had problems with his crossover on his 60.

    Yeah I believe you need to get the tapered 0-rates to keep the pinion angle good.:xmas:
