Re: SFA PULLING LEFT

It used to stand skew, with the left side nose being lower....

Also it would pull right when you brake.....

It now stands more level and I made a plan for the braking issue... Wil post photos later.

Hi Andy, It would seem that the axle brackets (???) have been worked on/changed in the past . Hmmmm I know that Hoppy moved the axles forward when he put the KZ motor in.... He also lifted it an additional 50mm. The problem was that the front & back axle were not aligned (ie tracking together). The...

Re: SFA PULLING LEFT

The saddle on the diff side is meant to be slightly higher than the opposing side's due to the differential housing's 'clash' with the leaf pack's position.

You will find that in most turbo's.
