    Is it a problem if the spool for the axles is a few inches aft of the wheels?

    Not at all - if you think about it, other than when the axle is flat in suspension travel, it’s never aligned.

    As long as you're not close to Max angle on the CVs or u joints (whichever you may be using) because that will increase the angle on them slightly throughout the whole travel. Wouldn't want them to bind. Other than that consideration, I think you should be fine

    I just didn’t know if it would cause problems with everything swinging on opposing arcs. I’m still debating whether or not to do it.
