Thanks for the replies.
Bounce test is fine... well i have driven a Datsun with way worse lets put it that way.
I do have 13" wheels on it but standard ride height.
Yes it doesnt seem to have the slop when on the ground but just when on jacks and lifting the wheel by hand.

Having some problems diagnosing a problem with my 1200 Coupe.
At highway speeds it seems to tramline over bumps and i have to counter steer to correct it and back off speed.
I adjusted the steering box, replaced sway bar rubbers, replaced castor rods and halved them to give more castor and also checked the wheel alignment (drive way job)

I cant find any movement in ball joint bearings or any steering linkages.
only movement i can find is when on jacks i can move the wheel up and down on the strut and 1/2 inch with out resistance.

What does the bound bumper do? Could this be the cause?

I can get the bottom brackets CNC cut and bent. I haven't got a quote on on these exact bracket but it should be around 5-6$ from the company we get or shed brackets through. If any one is interested let me know.

The strut has the numbers 3140200 and 11.46.24
The black bracket is marked 1158.06 from the same supplier
the bottom bracket is the result of some 50x50 duragal angle and a angle grinder.

I should have got the bracket for the bottom made up with a 5 degree kick to it so it was on centerline

I can get a part number. I only put one side on but it really needs two or a stronger strut.

I made one up from a gas strut meant from a tool box.

Bit of fun on the weekend. Supercheap has $4.50 (Roughly) spray cans of Acrylic Enamel paint so i thought i would give the valve cover a freshen up when i changed the gasket.
Super quick sand and clean then slapped a coat of black then bronze then a few clear coats.
Will see how long it lasts but for less than $15 .....
