Re: 2\" Backspaced wheels turning clearance
Sure thing Pug! I've attached a pic with the "problem spot" circled in red. I was considering moving my axle forward too, I just didn't want to spend the money on the relocation pads (and the driveshaft spacer that would also be required.) The budget 3" lift kit I bought was supposed to clear 30's without modifications, but that little seam bit into my tires as I was pulling the Zuk out of the garage! I'm guessing it was because of the 2" BS wheels I'm running.
Our setups are similar, but I'd like to ask you what shackles you're using, and the part number of your Doetsch-Tech front shocks. Someone with a bad reputation on this board sold me shocks that were too short to use with the 3" National springs.
By the way, those Breeze shackles in the picture are for sale if anyone's interested (I'm using longer ones now.) I also have a pair of DT3112 stock-length front shocks that need to go, and an OEM front sway bar with Calmini's extended mounts & poly bushings, and a pair of OEM front parking light guards, and a pair of unbent stock transfer case arms. PM me if interested.
