tail sharft to diff when on superlows

hi,

i have a noise in the back of my car when i back off, which i belive to be the rear unijoint

when i got some work done to my car, i asked about it, he said it was because with i lowered the car (superlows) it has caused the diff to tilt down at the front, causing the unis to always be on an angle. which i guess would wear them out quicker.... and now make noises.

has anybody heard, or experienced this?

Re: tail sharft to diff when on superlows

does anyone know how much superlows brought my car down?

the mech said to bring it up 1 - 1.5" and it will be fine, would this be "low" height?

im considering changing to low, superlow is causing a few other problems too, like zorst hitting on the sway bar and having to buy special shockers.

yeah you need to shorten your tailsharft and that will bring it up straight again, taking the angle of the uni.

it appears to happen when there is no load on the uni, so id say were talking about the same noise
