I recently moved my front axle forward about 3" and it was probably the best mod I have made to the suspension.

I did the same thing but the tire was eaten by the front fender corner afterwards...what gives...maybe I have too much up travel....umm.

Re: Fitting 35\" tires

Keith, I run 35's with stock YJ's SPOA and no body lift (some trimming). But you might be better off with 2 1/2" YJ's and use 15X8 with about a 2-2 1/4" BS (to clear springs when turning). I moved front axle forward 3" (to clear tub) and rear back 1" (to center in wheel well). I was the white Zuk at the Melt with TJ flairs and S logo in seats. Robert

Re: Fitting 35\" tires

Steering issues:
At the same time I put the rear OME springs up front I also installed the RRO over the top steering.
I installed the rear springs in the stock holes for the front springs.
Yes it steers different now, I think it mostly because of the hi-steer.
Overall the steering is better because itís less sensitive, but I was so used to it being twitchy, that it feels dead to me now. The only palce I notice it is on road. The steering really helped bumpsteer and effort. My arms arenít sore at the end of a hard day wheeling.

Re: Fitting 35\" tires

I am running the 2-inch OME lift spring in the front and only running 31's

Even with 33's, I don't foresee any contact issues anywhere.
