Ugh! I caused a problem to apparently re-appear tonight after doing a satisfying burnout.
I don't mind breaking stuff, but I do prefer to FIX it for GOOD. Sheesh!
When I got home, I noticed my differential/pinion was pointing way up high again, making my drive-shaft hit the tunnel on the slightest bump. Also, the rubber pinion bumper was popped out again as noted in my previous thread. A quick glance underneath and it looked as if everything was in it's place, nothing broken. I'll look closer tomorrow.
This occurred even after replacing rear control arm bushings, boxing the stockers and the new single Upper is now a Hotchkis adjustable unit. Still on the stock track bar, but with poly bushings now.
After the upgrades, I adjusted the pinion angle per the book at about 1.5 degrees as the manual shows it.
A month ago, the pinion was noted to be wrong and I thought it was just all my obviously worn out control arm bushings. I guess I was wrong.
Is this just something the 3-link will do when abused with clutch dumping burnouts? How do I fix/prevent it?
Would it happen if I had the 12-bolt and the 2nd Upper arm?
Am I missing something else? I dont' think my Hotchkis Upper will adjust any shorter!!
