Thread revival............

I have solid bushings on all my arms and installed spherical bushings in the axle housing. Sounds like a dump truck driving down the road and bangs REALLY hard on bumps. Double and triple checked everything. %80 track 20% street Normal?

I do as well. I couldn't figure out what the heck the banging was till today. After jacking it up for the 100th time I finally realized what it was once I lowered the car and looked underneath. I changed the bushings when I put in my moser axles, spool, rear end cover, eliminators and adjustable shocks. And because I changed so many things at once I couldn't eliminate one individual thing as the culprit.

Well it appears that because I have the car so low that the rear end girdle is hammering the spare tire well! Quite a good size dent. I guess when I have the shocks on a softer setting it's making contact.

Anyone else have this happen?

No strange noises here, got my bushings from Moser. You also need to make sure you have the right diameter bolts. I went with 1/2" Grade 8 bolts and had to open up the holes in the torque boxes and on the spacers for the larger bolt.

hmmm maybe that's what's also making the noise. So what size are the stock bolts again? I guess the slop between the bolt and the bushing is what all the hammering is?

I have Sphericals too. They make a little noise but it beats replacing the rubber ones when they tear apart.

T-trim and stuff

If you have a girdle and leave hard all foxes will do that. I just went under the car with a BFH. Problem solved! My "street car" has a UPR pro series suspension with solid bushings and it creeks and is a little noisy but I barley hear over my dumps Also left the stock diff cover on it...

My uppers have Solid bushings on the car end, Poly on the axle housing. Lowers have poly on the car end, and solid bushings on the axle end.. I get a little extra noise but the poly bushing help keep it kinda friendly on the street.

They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.
