Re: axle tramp

theres a few different causes -

how old are the shocks?
are the tyres underinflated?
whats the condition of the bushes on the diff arms?

Re: axle tramp

EDIT: nevermind, just rang up workshop and organised a suspension upgrade

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
