5473Re: [solectria_ev] E-10 Differential?
- Jul 1 3:31 PMIt says in the e10 manual somewhere that the rear springs are not stock and
were special 'made' by solectria...possibly the axle was also 'made' by
solectria and came as a complete section including the differential, axle
and springs...good luck. kevin
