    does anybody remember an ad in one of the four wheel drive mags about a company selling a bolt on steering brace that also moved the box forward an inch. i plan on using a zero rate to push axle forward an inch and was wondering about steering issues. but anyway i can't seem to find the ad and searched on here with no luck, anybody got any clues who made this thing?

    well i found what i was thinking of in the july 2005 four wheeler but it turns out it was designed for heeps. so if i do move the axle forward do i have to switch to x-over steering?

    Depends on how far you move it. You can take a look at your draglink, and if there's enough room for adjustment, you might be able to move the axle forward an inch or so. Going to crossover would be better though.
