Scrub Line, this is the point your axle will SCRUB the pavement.
When buying a dropped axle please make sure you have safe scrub line clearance with the amount of drop you choose .
To figure scrub line clearance with axle in car or truck.
1. Measure bottom of axle to ground with the wheels and tires you are going to run.
2. Measure bottom of wheel to ground.
Subtract #2 from #1 say axle is 12" off ground, bottom of wheel is 4" off the ground, you have 8" scrub line
this is your current scrub line.
Now Subtract amount of axle drop you want from Old Scrub line, you are getting a 3" drop axle, take 3" off, 5" is your scrub line.
New Scrub Line would be 5"
You want to end up with clearance you do not want to "scrub" the pavement and turn your truck into a front loader.
