    I'm putting 60 axles under a 55 project. Alcans for a 55 on the way.
    on the rear having to move the axle perches in 3 inches.

    I have noticed a difference in the perches.

    55 fairly plain, 60 has rubber pad insulator with large retainer, requiring large hole in perch.

    Question: is there any major advantage of either way?

    Better ride or no big deal?
    Thanks for any help.

    all the rubber pad does is isolate noise for a quiter ride, doesnt do anything to improve the ride. you dont need it unless you want it.
