    i hate over hang and love flex. i was thinking of running my 64's springs but with the over hang i got to throwing a tape under the s-10 and was pondering of just adding a buggy set up to the current springs.

    56s, short side to the rear? shouldn't have too much overhang if you are gonna have real tires. Thats what I'm gonna use on the truggy. Ought to be close to 90 degree depature angle with 42s....

    56"s short side rearward is the setup I was going to do on my S10 before I decided to go coil. S10s have narrower spring spacing(of course) so a set of 56s will flex nicely. And I believe it pushes the rear axle back about 2-4". Can't remember really.
