OK...finally some RESULTS!!!!<p>I have been playing in autocad using the s60r dimensions. assuming a stock 43.3 ft. turning radius. if you were to add 10mm spacers up front but cut the bump stops back so that the wheel could turn further, you would be close to a 38 ft. circle.<p>i know we talked briefly on this before and it was "deemed" a negligible difference, but here ya go.
