i did a reverse shakle flip with longer shackles and beefyer springs. i think it made my wheel base quite a bit shorter. my box is being rebuild as we speek(actully its done now). -any one know what the stock wheel base is???
-should i use tracktion bars to pervent axle wrap???
- cut the wheel well to make up for it (its not to late)
or shorten the box???
