What is your wheel base now?
My engine is about 2" at most from the firewall now, and in reality, without modifying it, I probably can't even move it back at all. Currently my axle sits directly under the 2nd Cylinders ish and to fit anything one or the other will need to move.

A little back story on why I want to do new front suspension last summer I bent my front axle when I bent my knuckle at the Sand lake comp. The best way to repair and keep it fixed is to truss it. With the radius arms, I don't have room to do a proper truss. That is the reason for the 3 or 4 link. I will also be able to gain more up travel during the process. Just gotta decide how I wanna go about it.

And yes my will base is somewhere around 118" and I don't want to go any longer.
