I noticed yesterday that the driver side rear tyre is slightly rubbing on the inner arch and the wheel appears to have an excessive camber compared with the other side, so concluded I need to replace/refurbish the rear beam based on this.

Has anyone had any experience with A B Axles in Somerset - http://abaxles.co.uk/en/about/ ?

I have seen a couple of negative comments on IM Axles in Nottingham, so guess it is best to stay clear of these. What other options are there? Looking for supply and fit ideally, as can’t be doing with the hassle of sending exchange beam, ride height adjustment etc.

Also, what jobs should be done at the same time? I already have new rear shocks and rear brakes to go on. Beam mounts I guess are a must? Anything else worth doing while it is all apart?

Carl did mine told him I wanted one as he'd fail the MOT due to camber on drivers side rocked up a few days later and got it done in the day with all bits swapped over. Can't remember who they come from.
