Rear axle question

My Zuk has a basic spring over and I'm considering moving the rear axle back 1" with the Spidertrax relocation plates. Will there be any problems with this? The only thing I can come up with is the passenger side tire might rub the metal cover for the gas filler hose.

Todd, I have two friends that run these on 32's. The only thing that they had to address was the drive shaft (1" spacer) I don't remember either of them having a problem rubbing the filler though.

Re: Rear axle question

If your running just 32" then you shouldn't have much of a problem. Have you considered just redrilling your spring perches and ubolt plates. The whole project will probably only take a couple hours, and better yet it's absolutly free and accomplishes the exact same thing. Just my .02

Re: Rear axle question

wouldn't that change your pinion angle if you just redrill your spring pads?

Re: Rear axle question

Not the spring pads! Drilling new holes on the pirch on the axle and the spring pad thing @ the top that holds the ubolts.

Re: Rear axle question

It would depend if he is using lift springs. If he has the stock overload spring he should be ok. One thing I wacth out for is possible contact between the gas tank skid plate and the diff. But only an inch, probably be ok
