I was thinking about buying some wheel spacer, but I am unsure with what I am really looking for and what will work best. I dont know if I would want to put spacers on the front, rear, or both. What about size as well. I have an 05 rappy. Any info would be great.

my rear spacers are 2" and fronts are 1"

i always see people with 1" more spacing in the rear


but isnt it better to have a wider front end to prevent understeer and tipping?

and how much wider and lower will the front end sit with yfz shocks?

and will i need to adjust the stock rear shock to compensate for the lower front end?

It's because the rear is skinnier than the front from the factory.

IMO balanced is best, within a half inch or less. If you're too wide up front then the rear end whips around with barely any movement of the handlebars and becomes unstable at speed, off camber, or coming off from/landing from jumps.

so would it make you even to go with +2 a-arms and a durablue +4 axle? or would that still be stabler than stock but not balanced? i would guess it makes you pretty damn even and balanced
