project Datto: logical order

So after removing the front axle, what could possibly be the next step? Of course, removing the rear axle, at least parts of it. So here is the rear suspension out.

Hat quite an OMG moment when I undid the rear drive shaft from the stub axle on the passenger side. The big nut wich holds the stub axle (a wheel,…) in place just fell on the floor once I unbolted the drive shaft. And it had the threaded portion of the stub axle in it. So it was broken for quite some time. Lucky me the drive shaft didn’t came lose or the car did not loose a wheel.

Oh, and some of the previous owners had to be McGyver. This is a quite special interpretation of a drop link. An all-thread with a welded nut on one side, 4 different bushes and for the best part no space between. So the droplink and therefore the rear swaybar couldn’t work at all 😉
