Volvo's rear axle had to be a front axle, after the pinion is on the right side of the Volvo's front axle.

Volvo's rear axle shortened down.




A little rusty.


Upper mounting plate, three link bracket.


Lower long arm bracket

First, it is to place it on the leaf springs and try so everything is okay.
After that, it will be a 4link.
