I couldnt find specifically any info on the X control arm swap and if the longer DSS +20mm shafts are needed.

Im asking cause I want to try both directions of my setup with the +20 SSB control arms and the standard with a +20mm wheel spacer. The difference in geometry being a trade off of SAI vs Scrub Radius.

Has anyone done the X arms with stock axles? Id rather buy spare axles than DSS shafts.
