    doing a 56" front spring swap and have a spare set of zero rates. i will be moving the front axle forward 2" with the swap. i don't need the lift,:confused: but will i benefit from moving the axle forward 1-1/2" more that the zero rate can give? or will this place too much leverage on the spring?

    You will have a better approach angle... and I hope that you are gonna do crossover at the same time. Never done it, but from what I understand the push/pull steering doesn't like the axle being moved, or a flexy suspension!!
