View Full Version : Factory Paint Markings

12-02-18, 10:10 PM
Hi All,
Does anyone have documentation, photos or otherwise, of paint markings to suspension and driveline components.
I have identified some markings
Front half of tailshaft a white painted band
Rear half of tailshaft a stamp
On the back face of the diff on the RHS axle tube a sticker and stamp.

I have heard of paint markings on upper and/or lower control arms but am looking for photos.

Anything else I may have missed.

One I work out how to post photos since the great photobucket scandal of 2017 I will post up what I have.

It would be great if others could could contribute. Try and get some traffic happening to keep this place going.

Looks like 2

Thanks. That was also the overwhelming answer on the HDT facebook page as well. I was only around 40% sure but with yourself and others saying 2 it is confirmed.
