    tigra back axle

    hey peeps, karen (aka miss tiggy) is having problems with the rear bearings on the tigra, now we have changed the bearings 3 times and still the problem is there, any suggestions as to what it could be/ what is causing it to keep going?

    also she is wanting to make the rear brakes into discs and not the drums that are on now, does anyone know if it can be done on a tigra and does it need a different axle off a different car etc

    any help is greatly appreciated

    I take it they arent being over adjusted.

    The centre nut should be done up so there is a little play in the bearing.

    Running larger rims?
