    I have 2 questions really.

    1. If I wanted to put 56's on the front of my K5 is the only thing I have to do is move the front hanger and then the shackle angle should be right?

    2. If I had 56's front and rear what would my wheel base be stretched to my goal is 114" to 116".

    the only way 56"s in the rear will extend wheelbase is if you run the backwards, I dont know if this is a good idea or not Somone will chime in

    56"s upi front will give you 2 inch more WB. And yes you just have to move the front hanger, the shackle angle seems kinda steep to me, So itll ride super soft. Youll have to Notch your body mounts by the Shackle so your shackle can cycle. And you will have to make longer shackles, 7.25 Eye to Eye seems to be what everyone is making, Thats what i made... Im running 52"s up front and 56"s in the rear.
