Hi guys I'm stretching the front end of my yj 4 inches I have the factory yj springs front springs but today I went and bought and pair of XJ rear springs my question to you guys is what is the best way to stretch the front end and outboard the springs for my Dana 44 axel the reason I am stretching the front is to clear my om 617 engine I have found different threads about each of these but not much on doing both. I would like to see some pictures and get some advice on how to go about this I've already cut the frame and started to fab an extension for the steering box im just not sure how far forward I should mount it. Im planning on moving the rear hanger back 2 inches so I get my desired 4 inches of stretch. One more question ive been considering doing a shackle reverse any advise woukd be awesome.
