A photo of one of this past weekend's projects. I modified a rear axle for a friend's Ascona. The suspension is already pretty well modified, but the car is getting a ZF limited slip and a 3.89 ratio to deal with the new 230+ hp 2.2 litre engine that's awaiting a roller cam swap. Here, the rear shock mounts have been lowered by about an inch to keep the axle from hanging too much in droop. This'll keep the shorter rear springs from falling out of their seats, and help prevent bottoming of the shocks under compression loads.
