Driveshaft Yoke / Swaybar Contact

Recommended Posts

The restoration show reports that the driveshaft yoke is contacting the swaybar and making nasty noises. Could the problem be related to the drive shaft alignment caused by a high ride height (Euro springs plus Bilsteins)?

What is the purpose of the rear mounting damper plate? Is it needed?

Thanks,

Fixitman

No, neither the location of the differential or that part of the sway bar are significantly affected by ride height.

Hi Fixitman,

I had the same problem.

The brackets who hold the sway bar bushings, were bended up.

This was caused by the car jack.

Good luck

If I understand your comments correctly, the rear swaybar might be positioned too high for some reason.
