Well with the design of the ea82 xmember that puts the control arm pivots right under the axles, I dont think I could fit a diff up front with a 6" lift and still have enough downtravel before the axles rub. Offsetting the diff backwards to clear the pivots will introduce even more angle into the outer cvs at full lock, not something I need with 30" tires. So that leaves me with one other option, and thats swapping the ea81 stuff into the front to get the control arms that angle forward and pivot in front of the axles. How much of a task would this be? Anybody done it before?
