    I am running my tierod above the springs and behind the axle. W/ the flat 52's and the zero rates my tierod is in my spring... crap.
    2 options I see are getting a 1" or so spacer to go under my steering arms (yuk) or removing my zerorates and drilling either the spring or the spring perch an inch or inch and half forward to keep my axle where it is now...?

    What is the best option here?

    I'd pull the zero rate and redrill. It won't be fun(especially with you on the drill press /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif), but that is what I would do.
