    No the axle came as in the pics, but I was looking at making my own brackets for the axle and chassis as I don't think much to the rear diff casing, was looking to make a new bracket that I could remove if I need to service the difference like this one? I am also making my own link bars to suit the 4ha axle, making all the from t4 tubing so should withstand the stress it might be under, and was thinking of reusing the anti roll bar?

    After along time I finally got a little work done on the manta tonight 🥳 Went up to the unit to see if my zafira bumper and bonnet were out of the paint shop after the wife had a bump But they weren't so im still waiting 😭 I got some modifications done to the manta ready for the rear axle upgrade, bought some GAZ rear coil overs and modified and strengthened the shock turrets got some pics I didn't have much clearance using the original rear shock mounts so decided to move them out by 1 inch, I have even thought about replacing the rear shock turrets but still undecided on what to do? I am using a 4ha 56 inch axle and going to try and 4 link it without loosing the rear seats, also has anyone put watts linkage on a manta? Did it make much difference the the way the handle? Still playing around with idea's on the rear axle, hoping to keep some motivation with the build but as you all know family and life take priority
