Re: sas install question ??

Thats correct and it's normal. With 2-3000 pounds on it they will move just like there supposed to. You did use the steel sleeve in your bushing didn't you?

Re: sas install question ??

yep, i pretty much figured that was normal, because like you said all that weight would move it, thanks for the
answer ,just needed some reassurance, what a nicely
engineered kit, people talk about making one, but no way
the average person could meet or beat that quality,
cant wait to have all four spinning again,
