OK, basically I'm getting pissed because I know this must be something much more simple than I can realize at this moment. I am rebuilding a 1983 D110 (see Registry), and have finally made some progress in the past couple months after 3 years.
After getting the original front axle lined up, Terra Firma shock turrets installed, mounted the front springs and shocks, and reinstalling the original trailing arms, the shocks/shock towers appear to be "twisting" in their mounts (see pics). When some NAS shorter trailing arms are used, it appears to rectify the issue somewhat, which tells me that either:
1) the axle is "turned"/canted down/up too much, which have affected the spring mounts on the axle, OR
2) the axle is aligned incorrectly from left to right, OR
3) the hell if I know
Any thoughts? Other than some smaller issues, it's about the only issue I have left on my rebuild to get completed.
