    Should this thread be in the "Joke of the Day" section?

    Yes, VR was the change over model to the separate strut/hub design.

    Losh has established its only a TRE and other companies have told him there is no parts damage. Chassis damage due to hit has not been checked or confirmed yet.

    Adjustable panrod bars also align rear wheel centre at the diff to help with drive train angles and alignment to prevent gearbox and tailshaft breakage

    Issue with chassis damage or poor alignment repairs cause what people call crabbing under driving/steering loads and this will wear tyre edges and basically cause issues of underteer like front wheel cars experience a lot even though its happening in a rear wheel drive car which normally has a oversteer issue where the rear steps out on cornering.

    Castor can wear tyres due to one wheel taking the leader position ahead of the other wheel pointing to that direction and the over correction of steering by drivers results in small continuing wear.
    And yes he has advised on many posts of the issues and we have to wait to see results as he fix later on not now

    Thank you for the public message, a private pm would have been a better choice,

    my posts have been most useful and not rubbish if you care to look back yourself and I do not troll as you say. Yes I have looked/searched at a few things like others on this site and have noticed some inconsistencies’ and on occasions to me in pm actual lies as those people associate with people I know. I don’t post just for the sake of it or status or to just click like back n forth between the same lil group for whatever reason without even addressing the original post.

    I would say in the fairness of equality and rules of the forum you have seemed to miss addressing the others responsible for their antics doing the same as you have mentioned especially in the thread you have closed, noting the blatant outbursts by Vslover who clearly stated he would be banned for it and didn’t care and you did nothing about it.

    Yes do the crime and pay with time, I have no issue with that, but not when its one sided, be non biased in your view and not protect those doing the same who you mentioned to me before in an earlier post to ignore.

    Well said, apparently its ok to call someone a shithead and yet VS gets to live another day, I see he also trying the same crap in this thread when I corrected VC, then their that other one called woteva that's now being a total troll yet nothing is said, seems to be if you defend yourself your in the wrong but those trolls get off scot-free and its those who start the s88t in the first place. They most be paying royalties so there for protected, if you look back at every case involved me I was simply defending the abuse and trolling. Just have a look what the newest troll has under his post above and tell me that fits the rules. He can look like a fool if he likes I now wait for the meme king to respond.

    So you and Trev seem to think it is ok to act like children in public but would like to be admonished privately for said sins? It seems the public calling out had the desired result, if you wish I could have sent you on a holiday instead? And please stop reporting posts that you now take offence too since your public humiliation, it's unbecoming.

    My posting mentioned what it is commonly called....It is also called a steering knuckle, but that's not so common. I could start posting things, in terminology that will confuse the majority of people, but how the heck will that help the general user on here?

    I leave it here it seems people don't understand what STUB AND AXLE means.

    Definition of stub axle in the English dictionary
    The definition of stub axle in the dictionary is a short axle that carries one of the front steered wheels of a motor vehicle and is capable of limited angular movement about a kingpin.

    Stub Axle requires a crown nut on the end of Axle to hold the wheel hub disk in place.

    So you are agreeing by this post that the TRE is attached to the stub axle then and the terminology I used was still correct?
