I think running spacers up front is a bad idea. not because of scrub radius, but because they create a lot more leverage on the balljoints, studs, shafts, etc.


just sell the waggy 44, go find a f150 4x4 with a HP44, it will match your rear axle in width and bolt pattern.

Oh no, I was just telling you not to worry about it, but my comments about not buying an axle were directed at Climbit. I knew you were just trying to set him straight on the info.

Did you buy your 37's new? I really want to bump up to 37's, but they are just so damn expensive.
