Center section offset from axle centerline.

Using a Dana 44 center section with CV joints, does anybody know if there would be a problem with having the center section 1" to 2" forward of the axle centerline?

Re: Center section offset from axle centerline.

From what I have been able to determine it's not the distance you need to be concerned with it is the CV angle.
A little is needed but more than 5 degrees at rest should be avoided.
The angle you will have depends on how far forward and axle length.
Expect to see greater temporary angles in the vertical plane as the suspension moves but that is OK so long as you do not exceed the working limits.

At these prices I want my gas 100 octane, leaded, and my windshield washed!
