    Default axle tramp yo

    OK i have a huge problem with axle tramp.. i never had this problem in my 86 when it was a t-series locker used to come on boost and spin really easy. now i have a r31 skyline diff with a tighten lsd. i am running suzuki seirra shocks with cut down springs out of a ford falcon. when my car comes on boost doesnt matter what tyres they are it starts tramping hard. the only way to spin the wheels and not get tramp is start of in second at high revs and it will spin nice and easy no tramp.


    please guys any info on stopping tramp would be great.

    might have something to do with the pinion angle that your mounts were set to

    im not really shore what to look at what angle should it be at i gave the diffs to a joint to swap all the mounts over and the car runs standard links. what you trying to say is if i change my pinion angle it could solve this issue

    first of all... the shocks are TOO short stroke for your car really, unless you have mounted the shock mounts on the diff further up. otherwise the shocks will be bottoming out, and this is not healthy for them also hows the bushes in your trailing arms? if they are flogged it will tramp big time.

    i have 31 diff in my rolla and it doesnt tramp 1 bit.

    i don't think it'd be the shocks as hundreds of others use them without having the same problems. it is fairly easy to test though.

    i reckon it will be, sure others use them,. but not with the 31 diff, the diff is much heavier then stock, and mounting points lower then stock also.... so the shocks are operating well outside their capeabilities.
