It certainly sounds like the axle is on the move. You could check the
shackle and eye bushes from underneath. If you can lever them a long way out
of place, they're history.
It might also be worth checking the rubber pads between the clamping plates
and the springs. These have a 'top hat' section which surrounds the springs'
clamping bolts. If these rubbers are goosed, the axle could be sliding about
on the springs.
