If you have the funds, change those bushes out to mono ball swivels - they really make the rear axle float and get rid of any binding....

Very nice work on the adapter plate. Why is there a downward angle towards the front of the car?

Also, nice work in the panel recovering job. What material did you use? Are you going to add the strap to the upper door panel?
