Re: axle tramp

theres a few different causes -

Re: axle tramp

not long ago put in kings springs with koni adj's, tyre are all good, the rear bushes will hopefully be replaced soon with nolathane ones, think they are getting a little old and worn, still had the problem after i did the suspension upgrade
