moving the rear axle

I run the TT rear hangers with CJ fronts and longer shackles in the rear of my Zuk. I'm not sure how far the axle is back from stock but it is some. Anyway, I was contemplating moving it back between 3/4" and 1" but it appears the pass. side shock will hit the gas tank if I go back any farther. Is this going to be more trouble than its worth???

Re: moving the rear axle

Move the pass shock forward of the tube. It will held dampen axle wrap with the pass side forward and the
drivers side to the rear. Just use a drivers side plate (if your using stock shock mounts) on the lower end and
fab a new top mount. Sligtly longer wheelbase helps a lot of things so yes its worth it. don't forget to check
the drive shaft extension first though.

Re: moving the rear axle

you could move both forwards and add breezes traction bar, which with that set up you should have one of some kind in there. that is the set up i basicly run except i have ml's. when i put in the traction bar it made all the diff, in the world. no more axle hop or wrap.
