Morning Pink MG,
Yes the car was jacked up and it is supposed to be an “up” adjustable axle. When I installed everything originally the pinch bolts and adjusters plates are at the bottom of the adjusting slot/axle.
In my mind the pinch bolt and the adjuster plates need to rotate upward toward the top of the adjusting slot/axle, is this correct?
I don’t see anything stopping movement unless maybe the sway bar is keeping it in a bind. I don’t see it touching anywhere except where it connects to the lower control arms. Like I said earlier I thought the shocks may have been preventing it form moving so I unbolted them at the top of the shock tower.
