Limited Slip Differential (not sure what type - previous owner
Two trailing links, two leading links. One of the trailing links
has a triangulation arm that mounts to the center of the chassis below
the diveshaft for axle lateral location.
This mount has cracked
many times at the junction of the fabricated
sheet metal mount and transverse chassis tube, on the "tension" side of
the mount. Beefed up with gusset plates welded in.
at photos (example
- that tire should be about 1/4" within the fender,
not 1 inch out!), lateral axle movement was apparent. Made
polyurethane (shore 95) bushes for the two split bushes, and added a
transverse tube in suspension arm to beef things up and for peace of
mind - photo
