Axle Location

I am building a custom coil suspension setup and would like some input from you guys and gals about the best axle location.
Would it just be best to leave the axles in the stock location or prefer to move them back or forwards to get the best spot?
Whats the best location to get 35's stuffed into the wheel wells with minimal cutting of the guards? (if at all).
Would like to know all pros and cons of doing this.

Thanks in advance
Andy

Re: Axle Location

Do a lot of searching on Pirate, you will find more than you will ever need. Just for the record if you are going to have a lot of flex, you will have to cut for 35's.

Re: Axle Location

Yeh its pretty impresive at pirate, but gee they is nasty boys to play with.

There is still a lot of tech here, and the guys are more fun.

Found a funny OT at pirate but dont know if I dare post the link here.

Re: Axle Location

I'd say move the rear axle back an inch or two, and extend the front as far as your willing to go. Do a search for bdacus on pirate, he has one of the best looking modified samurais I have ever seen, he runs 36's and it stuffs just fine in the rear.
