    Does moving the front axle foreward 1.5" affect the steering as long as I adjust the drag link?

    Gm 10 bolt with no crossover. It has a 4" steering arm and a 4" drag link.

    As long as the draglink has that much room to adjust I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work. It will shorten up that link though and it will probably bind quicker under flexing. I may be wrong though. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I've run with the axle 1" forward in my K5 and it didn't work any worse than the factory steering did to start with. That's not saying much.
