the wheels are 17x9's with 4.5" BS 26x13.5" Iroks...

What do you guys think I sould do? Get the IFS hups? of keep it this width?

Right now i think its about 68.5" out side of tire to out side of tire.... with the IFS hubs it would be 71.75

If you can get full steering travel out of it as it sits, I would leave it narrow. If ride height is going to be anywhere around where it is now I think it looks great.

I think i can make it steer at this height... but this is full compression, ride height will be 4-6" heigher. I will be runing 14" fox coil overs.

Choose your advise wisely. Half of these white devils giving you advise here have 4-links that work like crap :flipoff:

The drawing you posted wont tell you your anti squat. You need to post the side view.

OK so I lowered it 2" (4" of up travel now) and this is the best I could get.. I like everything but the 3* oversteer.. and I dont know how I can get it in the - understeer. Will this be a big deal? I cant make my links on the axle much wider.

that looks good for a full bodied rig. I wouldn't worry about small amounts of oversteer.

I don't get it, whats it for? Does the housing twist up at the tubes when trussed like that?

Or is it just a blingy thingy?
