    hey guys, im beginning to think about getting some zero-rates to add to the 8" lift i already have, and moving the front forward 1". my question is by moving the axle forward, will the front rub on turns or in flex? im also thinking about getting one for the rear, but just as another inch of lift to even it out, cuz in my mind i think it would look weird w/o cutting the fenders.

    does anybody have pictures of their trucks with zero-rates, i want to see how the front looks with it moved forward before i set anything in stone.

    thanks, all help is much appreciated

    moving the aqxle forward helps to decrease rub, because as the axle flexes, it moves backward.
    i moved mine forward 1 1/2" and it helped alot, no rub at all with 35's and a 6" lift.

    If you cut the front fender under the marker light, you cant even tell the axle was moved. If you dont cut that tab of fender you may see it a little, but shouldnt be too noticable.
