Both axles are moved rearward relative to the body when you go from a 109 to 110. So, you front wheels will be too close to the back of the wheelwells in both cases. Take a look at the picture in the last post on the linked page.

I forget if the inch difference is in the front or the back, but when I mocked it up it looked fine.

Thanks Shams. Are those photos with the axles moved or the body just dropped onto a 110 frame with axles in stock position? Im afraid moving axle locations would be beyond my limited mechanical capabilities.
