Looking back at that first pic, I need to hit the front suspension with some Simple Green and the power washer...
I originally was worried that the panhard axle mount would bang against the fuel tank strap mounting boss on the frame, but it looks like the axle will hit the bumpstop a good 3/4" before that happens.
I still think I want to look into some stiffer rear springs.
Not much has been happening with this, other than driving it a bit.
I did take care of the slight PS ride height issue yesterday by adding in another one of the spring shims I had.
I did a bolt check on the rear suspension, and only found one fastener loose (One of the jam nuts on the PS upperlink), so that's nice.
I did have a loud bang a couple of times while driving it over the past couple of weeks, after hitting kind of a sharp bump in the road. Couldn't see any contact on anything when I checked it out at that time, but I think I found the culprit.
The bolt axle mount for the panhard bar was sticking out about 1/2" or so from the nut and looked like it fouls on the plastic gas tank cover. It causes it to bang against the tank, which can be kind of loud. There's no risk of it hitting the gas tank during the suspension travel, just that cover that is spaced out about 1" from the front of the tank.
I flipped the bolt around, so the shorter bolt head was facing rearward, and it looks like that should solve that problem.
I usually use a little super glue to hold them onto the rigid hoses. Sometimes, a short length of silicone hose works well, as it can stretch a bit, to fit the larger OD fitting, and still have some longevity.
