    hey there im going to be puttin zero-rates and moving the axle forward 1" or 1.5" on my k5, which already has 8" lift. i do wheel it, so i assume its gonna need trimming. i know thats more lift than most of you guys that run 40s, but i would like to see pics of trucks with that or similar set up so i get an idea of how much trimming im need to do.

    thanks

    Sapper,

    What size/lift 52's did you use, and do you have anything else up front accounting for some of your lift (shackles etc)? And, did you do a flip and 4' springs out back??

    Thanks

    Matt

    The wheels are recentered H1 rims with runflats, I got the centers from USA 6x6, the BS is 3.5"s, the track width is narrow because I'm useing a dodge 60 and they are the same width as a ff14. The 52s are stock, in the rear I have a ORD 4" flip and zero rate
