Longer arms W/O lift....

849 5
How far can I push the axle forward with longer than stock arms with little lift before I have to change to much. Does anyone make track bar/steering box relocation brackets. Any one here done it?


I'd like to keep my truck low and usable. I already plan on trimming fender.... thinking longer arms couldn't hurt w/ travel and firewall room. 1000-3000 suspension not an option right now. Garage fab is the name of the game.

also interested i would like the front tires to be as far forward as posible
1 reason to clear 35 or 37 with it fully compressed and turning without rub
2 lost the front bumper
anyone

I think arms for a 3 inch lift move it 1.5 forward

Your 35's will only rub the control arms on stock wheels.
I think CA's for 2-3" leveling kits are only ½" longer than stock or there abouts, certainly no where near 1½".
