Rear axle

Has anyone noticed their left rear axle sticking out a 1/4in? I took mine to the dealer and they didn't see anything wrong. They just said, the new Shelby wheels will stick out further. Which I know that but I don't think one side should stick out further. Am I right?

Is it lowered?

Even cars from the factory could use an adjustable panhard bar. And if you're lowered you absolutely need one.

Hey,

As mentioned before, these axles do have a tendency to shift a bit even without lowering the car. If one side is sticking out a bit more than the other, it is usually a tell tale sign that it will need to be adjusted. This can be done with just about any pan hard bar, and is a relatively easy fix.

I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, feel free to get back in touch. Good luck!

-Dan

Um...The axles don't "shift" in their mounts, those are fixed on a link rear, unless you bend the axle tube or the chassis. There's just production tolerances and it's irrelevant anyway. If the axles shifted post assembly, the alignment would likely be off.

If the car is tracking straight, then the thrust line of the car at the back is lined up with the front and don't worry about it. If you're OCD and need this to be visually perfect, you can pull it over a bit with a panhard bar, at the cost of inducing a tiny bit of extra binding force on the bushings out back. Really OCD? Loosen up the LCA and UCA bolts, pull the axle over and retorque everything.

...or just drive on....

I had the exact same issue. It became even more apparent with my wide RTRs on. I installed an adjustable panhard bar and am golden now. Perfectly centered.
