Why would you want to move your axle? Sometimes after doing a lift or with some models from factory the axle visually looks farther to one side than the other in the wheel well. These plates can be used to center it back up. Some also use them for improving approach/departure angles. By moving your front axle forward and rear axle back you can help ensure your tires will the the first things to hit on an obstacle and the last to leave. 

The axle relocation plate has four positions to move the axle forward or rearward, Centered (0.00), .50", 1", and 1.5". This gives you many adjustments to get the axle right where you want it.
