    *** photos currently linked to the other place...MY PHOTO"S THOUGH...
    I would have uploaded them but the settings are strange right now at 600+ x 200+ ***

    A lot of GM HD 4x4 owners are buying these up. There is about a 2" difference between the front track width and the rear. causing poor tracking and understeer conditions.

    Pepperidge, where can I get a set of these and what do they cost? Stupid question for ya, I could still haul and tow with these on, right? I've seen some similar things used on my friends low rider trucks, but not ever on a truck that would get used to tow fifth wheels and stuff.

    I was under the impression that the track width differences were to improve tracking and to allow the rear to follow the front better (better turning radius and less scrub).

    I will admit, equal width looks better, but in my experiences (mostly jeep related, I can't tell a whole lot of difference on the road honestly), a slightly wider front makes the rear axle follow much better.

    your not following in the Road ruts from 18 wheelers that are the same track width as yours...it makes a big difference...
