So far, VERY happy It rides just fine, as nothing works against anything anymore. It was a big difference and a big relief.
One thing to mention is that when the car sat on the ground without any rubber, there was space for 2 of the thick instead of one thick and one thin. When my rubber was made, I got some extra material left over that was just enough to make another set of the thick, so I now use 2 thick 35:s on each side and there is no play, but also no forces as they are soft. They just allow the rear axle to travel and kind of damp the outer ( up & down ) limits of the travel softly instead of a sudden stop that stresses the upper control arm bushing & bolt into the support frame. Springs and dampers are original, so handling is like it should be.
Will take a picture tonight.
