Re: How much lateral movement of the rear end
I plan to install a simple panhard rod if I ever get motivated...it's in the corner and I need to make brackets and cut my exhaust in front of the axle.
But the easy solution is just roll the fender lip a little. No sharp edge...no cut tires.
I have 295/50/15 on vintage slotted mags which have backspacing somewhere in the 3-4.5" range (never checked it) so the tires sidewalls are even with the chrome lip trim...which means there is an inch or so lip over the tires even though they are rolled up to the mounting surface for the trim.
They rub on hard sharp bumps, but never cut so it's harmless. Just sounds annoying.
