Hi Henk.
This is a photo of my other bus with welded in brackets, set up to run fairly low but camber was spot on. Hopefully gives you an idea of the clamp angle/and trailing arm pivot point.

No one wants the risk of this happening.

What’s the zip tie holding ? And is that T join going to another which holds the flexi which is then rubbing on the A arm ?

Oh think you might what a new hardline...

I can't remember what the cable tie was doing. Long time ago.

Yes, it got new brake pipes.

One thing I dont understand is, my bay is lowered, only one outer but it has a good negative camber on it, It has been like that for years and has never shown any adverse tyre wear, I would expect the inner to wear?
Dad, theres smoke coming out of the back!!!

Have you had the tracking checked? Maybe it has too much toe-in, so the tracking wear is compensating for the camber wear?

The tyres have hardly worn at all, they are good tyres mind, Continental Vanco but if you look at it from the back it looks like that they would wear in a minute!
