In the last blog, we went through fitting the Front Hardrace adjustable suspension arm
Now, it was time to move on to the rear, and take a look at the damage.
When we took the rear adjustable bolts, the culprint became apparent.
This is the rear traction arm bolt. As standard they have a small amount of adjustment to play with suspension settings. In the impact, it shredded the bolt, and below, if you compare the washer on the right to the one on the left, you'll see.
While we had the rear hubs apart, as we seem to do with everythig we take off, we wanted to make it look newer, remove the rust, grime and dirt.
Wire brush and some brake cleaner, makes it look much cleaner.
Time for a little bit of paint
It is actually stove paint. Not because we are worried about heat from the brakes. We just like the fact the paint is enamel based to always seems to be a lot more robust from chips and corrosion.
Much cleaner look,almost new.
So that is the rear end all stripped down, problems found (we think). So next on the list is to build the rear end back up and see how we do on the alignment.
