When comparing the angle of front arms and rear arms angles, the rear arms of my marder don't drop down as far as the front. For troubleshooting I've removed the long limiting screw on the rear upper arms but the arms didn't not drop any lower. I think my turnbuckles need to be adjusted but not sure how to do that as when I unscrew them too much the dogbones come out of the cups when driving. Is there some setup guide or instructions on how much to screw in the turnbuckles, etc. Procedure to assembling the rear end.

Hello,

you will need the nuts to block the ball end.
You can solve the problem easy with some washer between the rear axle shaft and the hub this will reduce the gap for the dog bone.

The problem is partly to do with the angle of the shocks. If you take a look compared to the front socks they are much more upright which is better for off road set up. I am going to make some brackets for mine to fix to the rear shock tower and give the more upright mounting position.

dwarfy, can you upload a photo of the brackets when you've made them? I'm very interested in seeing what you've done.
