I'd run a 1/4 off set front rims with +3 arms to get back to the same width as the stock 2/3's with +2 arms.

Having less bump steer would an added bonus.

IMO this is the perfect suspension for a woods bike in my area.

Have you ridden +3" A-arms? If not, I'de try them before I bought them.
I smell a trade....

700's are wider stock than a 660. +2's on a 700 would be close to +3's on a 660. Right about 50" wide.
