Ok so the solid rear axle is not going on as smoothly as the picture in the assembly manual. Even after a beer break I am still having problems aligning the lower control arms from the rear axle bracket to the brackets on the frame. They appear to be off set by about an inch. I can muscle them in place but they are a bit tweeked. Is that normal ? Anyone else have that problem. This is a solid rear axle on an MK 4. I have loosened the axle brackets
I am using the lower bolt holes on the axle as the manual says it provides more traction.

Ahy thoughts guys ?

I had a similar problem on my MK3. I found that it eventually lined up perfect by moving the rear around some (up, down, forward, aft, left and right). The rear has to be in the right postion for the LCA to line up.
