    So our rear suspension forces the tire to contact the front of the rear wheel well under max compression (with 33" tires). It sure looks like the axle is moving forward under compression... is it? I know that is a sure fire way to have a rough jarring feeling on hits (axle moving INTO hits instead of up and back). I see people with negative arch and it seems like this would make the shackle swing forward and thus the axle move forward. That seems like a huge design flaw that needs correcting if true... is that the case? Or is that just expected with SOA? IF I got longer and thus taller springs and a longer shackle to drop the rear back down... what would be the net effects?
