    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I will run into any problems running the zero rates to move the axle forward with crossover steering setup? I want to move my D60 forward with the zero rates. What does this do to the drag link and other steering components? What is required to make this work properly?? I was thinking that the drag link would need to be a touch longer, what else? Also, do the zero rates move it forward an inch or 1.5 inches? And if I didn't use the zero rates and just drilled the spring perches to achieve the offset, would all the issues be the same?

    only difference in zero rates or drilling perches is the height. Otherwise you should be fine on all counts. Watch out for the clearance between the draglink and the leaf spring on the pass. side.
