Rear Axle Torsalastics on Model 01 are Shot!

This is a public forum to discuss Eagle related technical issues. If you are having a problem with your Eagle, this is the place to find help.


Julio,

I'll get some pics posted tomorrow! I'm assuming you want pictures of the torsalastics and adjustment rods?

I just talked with Jim Hufford and he has given me some ideas. He experienced the same issue on his 01

Ken also left me a message, will talk with him tomorrow as we are about to eat dinner.

Thanks to everyone for the help!

Paul, do you have the spacer on the rod above the bottom jam nut if so you can remove it and get more adjustment.You can reindex the torsalastics on the rear just like you do the boggies or tag (big job) they are splined fwiw good luck

Clifford,

I'm going down under in the morning and take some pics and look for the spacer you mentioned. Also spray some PB Blaster on the rod and nuts and let them soak.

At least some adjustment is on the Driver Side, which is the one I looked at yesterday, assuming the passenger side would be the same, NOT!

The Passenger Side does not have the locknut and the rod end is just barely visible.

I'm going to unhook from our spot Saturday, go to a level spot and measure all points and go from there.
