Re: Rear axle cracked

Got it! A picture is worth a thousand words. Another potential issue to keep an eye on then. There is a few on that list now to keep watchful eye on for my MY18. Inner guard crack, axle crack, evaporator for AC crack, steering rack housing crack.

Re: Rear axle cracked

I will quizz the guys at Outback Armour for further and better particulars re their product versus oem bump stop. My oem bump stop does not appear that it would compress much at all. It feels pretty solid. Anyway, I will see how I go finding out more stuff re issue.
Cheers!

Re: Rear axle cracked

mydmax, I never considered the airbags as an option ever. There is a "compression section" of the jounce stops before it is solid and "no compression" like the oem bump stop. I will try and find the breakdown of the jounce stop ie compression section and non compression section. Edit. Best I could f...

Re: Rear axle cracked

Ok ruler out and under I went. The oem bump stop is 80mm from the bottom of bump stop mount plate to end of bump stop. Between top of bump stop to the contact plate of chassis a further 90mm. So 170mm between spring top and contact plate. Jounce stop 110mm in length so, if fitted, leaves 60mm betwee...

Re: Rear axle cracked

The 110mm length jounce stop replaces the oem bump stop that is about 80mm at a guess in length so another 30mm of progressive compression section. I can't see the problem but I will get under with a ruler and do the maths first. I will make further enquiries and look into it further first before do...

Re: Rear axle cracked

All fair comment Mydmax. I don't plan on exceeding the 3050kg oem GVM by much as I agree that areas of vehicle like axles, bearing, drive components and brakes are not upgraded with GVM upgrade but I wanted to be legal Australia wide and no where near my allowable new GVM of 3600kg. I will add these...

Re: Rear axle cracked

A progressive stop would reduce shock load compared to non progressive. That is common sense. I didn't design these jounce stops, Outback Armour did but as a consumer, I can see the benefit. As much as I love my Dmax I know it has short comings. That is why modifications are devised. Isuzu engineers...

Re: Rear axle cracked

I don't need to be a qualified engineer to know that reducing shock load on axle as it grinds to a hault on the bump stop limit by having a progressive type jounce stop is a favourable preventative action to take. Just need common sense to know that, it is not rocket science imho. You see, I wouldn'...
