Plenty better than CE kit.

But you've not actually said what you need to sort?

Its the narrow rear the bus has got huge banded rims on the back to take up the wheel arch width and I want to bring thr rear drive width back to normal , I think I need longer drive shafts ?

Have you got any photos?

Wonder if the a-arms have been fitted on the wrong side of the spring plates.
