    I have been driving the 86 for a few days now, feels so good to have it all Fully legal and drive it on the road.
    And as you do with a fresh build, a few little issues cropped up.
    One rear brake caliper decided to leak a little, so i rebuilt them both with new seals, etc.
    Also installed some Mighty car Mods Chopped tow straps as 'Oh Shit Handles'.
    And then to top it off the oil feed to the turbo started to also leak slowly, so i rebuilt this also.

    Im also finding that there is quite a lot of road noise from the rear, which because of the Nolathane solid bushes in the arms and the solid panhard rod it all just travels straight into the shell.
    I have tried putting in the standard bushed arms, this helped a little but gave me real bad axle tramp.

    Anyone have any ideas on the best way to shut it up a bit more.??
    (Oh and rear-end is fully sound deadened etc.)

    Did you get your tramp issue sorted out with your standard arms?
    Might be due to the lengths being off on the 4 links :/

    Can get a bushed end for the Panhard to body link.
    I'm kinda dreading finding out what the road noise is going to be like in mine as the only bushes left are in the LCA and ARB shackles (both ARB end links are Spherical), everything else is spherical and it's also got Cusco engine mounts and Hardrace gearbox mounts.

    Hey man, I changed back to just solid bushed arms on the bottom, and tramp is all gone. Noise is still there a bit, but alot less..
    And yea i have thought of going to a bushed end on the panhard, actually i think it is kinda bushed, more like solid plastic. So i could change that out to a softer bush possibly.

    Oh wow, yea that could be quite noisy. Will handle like a dream, but could require air muffs haha..
