Rear axle

How many spacers does the rear axle of an '82 Interstate usually have, and on which side? Thanks!

There are two spacers. Look at this thread and scroll down for images of the spacers and their locations. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=73

Thanks! I have 3 spacers. One that fits into the wheel on the brake side. A long one that fits over the axle, but thru the right drive assembly. And one that's looks like the brake side one, but shorter that fit into the wheel side of the drive assembly. I checked the parts blow up, but couldn't find the third spacer. So, I'm thinking it's an improper addition.

It is. I just finished putting a new tire and rebuilt rear caliper on mine. The spacer with the longer extension fits into the recess for the wheel bearings and the flat side of it faces the swing arm. The shorter spacer faces the swing arm.

Good Luck!
