This is a temporary set up until I get the 8.8 and long arms done. I'm only going to be running 31's until then so centering is not all that critical.

You don't center the axle.

Start at 17.5" and adjust as needed for your driveshaft angle.

I realise that its not centered in the wheel well was trying to say that with 31's and 4.5 lift I will have plenty of clearance so wheel placement isn't as critical
