    got the new/crated ff14b home today and noticed that the axle tubes outboard of the spring mounts have either a) enough rust that it is slightly narrower then at the center section or b) its just surface rust and the thing necks slightly. Question: should the tube be the exactly same diameter over its entire length or is there normally a taper? and, what is the wall thickness of said tube?
