Here are some pics showing the rear axle with new gaskets, sealing and paint. Just behind, in light blue color, my new softer rubber. They didnt have black this soft.... I might need to go up to harder shore later on, but this is what I will try first anyway as I want something drastic compaire to the "hockeypuck" I have before.
Pic #2 shows how far the upper control arm is from the support in the frame and the 3:rd pic shows that the travel arms have moved up 6" when thr control arm is connected. This is "maximum travel" without any rubber dampers in the most rear part of the axle. You can also see how much apart the "clamp" is compair to Astrowings in Post #60. Imagine how much more the whole rear axle will go upp if this part is tigtheen.
I will not mount the bolt, sleeve and rubber dampers until the tires is on, so I need to come back to this later.
