    NOTE: To those using Zero Rates in Front to move it 1.5\" Forward/Back!

    For anyone who wants to use Zero Rates up front to move your axle forward 1.5"/1"! If you decide to use them, Which is awsome, You will either HAVE TOO use a swaybar disconnect setup or you will have to do away with your swaybar all together! Just hooked mine up, and I'm glad I had a disconnect ready to install at the same time!!!!! If not, the sway bar doesn't line up! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Funny mine became less /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    It put my drag link at a better angle. I have alost ZERO bumpsteer after the Zero rate and moving the drag link forward 1 inch. Course I'm running springs rated 2.5 inches with 35's. ( it actually measures 4.75 inches over my wifes stock 79 with the zero rates)

    If I lift, and why wouldn't you, the first thing I do is get rid of the sway bar. Hate that thing.

    Well, Unfortunately, I still have to let my wife drive this truck everyday! That doesn't keep me from building it, but it does keep me from letting her take it around turns doing 40+! I like the sway bar on there for now till I know she doesn't need it anymore! If I don't like it later, I'll get rid of it, But until then, I think she needs it! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If I move mine forward with Skyjacker 4" springs and a stock driveshaft, the driveshaft would become to short?

    It might. Looks like I'm going to have to lengthen my rear when I move it back.
