Hi, the distance between wheel and wheel house in the rear is different on my Pantera, approx 1". The ZF is located exact in the middle and I can't measure a different between driver and co driver distance. Any idea where it is coming from ? To mount different size of spacer seems not a good idea.(I didn't get the pictire below 1MB.... thanks,
Uli

Do you mean that the distance from the side wall of the tire to the edge of the fender lip is 1" closer on one side then the other side?
Yes, from the side wall tire to fender lip. I am still working on to get the picture with less byte... thanks, Uli
Panteras were hand-assembled, then welded in steel jigs at the factory, so its hard to understand how a structural part (in a monococque, all body parts are structural) could be added 1" off. The only time I've seen this is with a crash repair where someone didn't check closely before welding new or replacement parts in. And heaven knows that a LOT can happen- good and bad- to a car in 45 years. Undercoating can hide such weld additions.
understand, I am afraid the car did have a "little" accident. can I use different spacer to reduce the differences ? or not recommendet ?
I think that you need to put it up on a body shop "rack".

There you can accurately determine what is not right.

You really want to space out the upper and lower control arms IF POSSIBLE rather then space out the wheel.

If you don't do this right, the car is going to feel like it wants to go sideways all of the time.

It might even be that when the car is on the "machine" it might still be possible to "pull it out" 1".

That machine really does remarkable work and has saved many bent chassis'.
thank you. winter time the engine will be upgraded. same time we will check the distances in detail,
regards, Uli
