    Rear axle position....

    Hi knowledgeable RR folk. Does it matter if the rear axle is positioned with flat edges vertically or horizontally?

    As Alex said but I think as long as you fit them the same both sides, can't see a problem

    The axle bolt I'm referring to, not the block 'washer' The flat edges of the axle being vertical makes sense.

    Ok, that being the case, but I was referring to the position of the axle itself and whether the flat edges are positioned vertically or horizontally. I've gone with vertically as that is what owners suggest is the correct position.
