    Rear wheel toe and drive shaft spacers

    Gen II with X300 donor parts.....

    Just re-assembled the drivers side hub and drive shaft.

    There are no drive shaft shims off the donor, only two differing thickness spacers side to side that (I think) double up as a centring bush between the dif and drive shaft??

    I have the bottom pivot bolt pushed outboard as much as I can.

    Problem is, the top of the wheel is still tipped out board, but I think I need it to be tipped in?

    I can just about get the top of the wheel tipped in by removing the centring bush, but I do not think I can run it without this??

    The only option I can see is to get the centring spacer surface ground down to about 4mm thick so it still centres the drive shaft but doesn't push the wheel out?

    Anyone else had this issue?
    Regards

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    Graig the spacers between the drive shaft and diff flange don't need to be ground on a surface grinder, they're pretty soft so can be turned down as necessary on a lathe, that's what I did.

    Have you set the top of the hub to 150mm below the rear axle hop
    Over area. The bit where all the roll bar mount threads are.

    If you haven’t set this ride height and the rear suspension is drooping to low it could be causing your problem.

    No I haven’t, thanks Anthony, I forgot that bit. Back in the garage again tomorrow so I’ll check it then.

    My guess is you will Be now adding shims to get your 1 degree camber.
