yeah i did the 2 up and 1/2 back. wheel looks pretty centered to me, if it is back a little i canít notice it. wheels are 15x8 zero offset, 195/15 yokohama s. drives. i should have went with a 16x8 zero offset but i couldnít find any for a decent price and everything i found was negative offset which i didnít want. only reason i say that is cause on full lock turning, the radius rods that bolt to the lcaís were hitting so i had to cut the ends off of them and shave them a little more for them to clear.

Ahh ok i was kind of wanting to get some 15x8 wheels and do spindles and a redrill but I am indecisive at the moment as I like the stance my truck has right now with the 17x7.5 fj cruiser steelies

You’ll have to be careful running 15’s with spindles. Many 15’s won’t fit with spindles.

mine are clearing for now, had to trim radius rods a bit and checked clearances on them after said and done. everything clears, it’s just really close. i think it’s about 3/8ths on each side at full lock. no one mentioned that to me and i didn’t search enough to see if they would clear. all the truck stuff is new to me lol. i’ll eventually get some 16x8 rpt1’s and go a little lower, but for now it’s working and i’m pretty happy with it.

just came across rohdefabrication.com and they offer a bolt in c notch that clears the bed. looks like i’m gonna buy those sometime soon and get two inch blocks to get the rear end lower. right now ground to top of fender is like 23 and 3/4 up front and 24 out back. it needs to go lower out back, maybe a tad in the front as well. this things gonna be dragging frame soon haha. i already hit exhaust on the speed bumps on my block, but i’m gonna get the whole system re done tucked up higher than the frame so it doesn’t hit anymore. pics to come, probably with a shitty link but you get the idea lol.

yeah my exhaust is so fucking ghetto, needs re done asap. truck rides fine, maybe a little soft actually. rear end sits too high still, exhaust scrapes all over lol. next thing is a tune up cause this thing gets like 250 miles to a tank, then those c notches. need a roll pan too. blah blah blah.
