maybe he means the center pins are ground down,or the hole in the perch is ovaled. that would make sense.

there are raised "buttons" that that stick up from the spring perches and indentations on the bottom that those
buttons fit into from the angle blocks. These 'center' your axle on the leafs and spring perches to make your rear end symetrical to the frame.... that is the only thing I can think of

Two words: PHUCK SEARS!:goodfinge

Open the phone book to Tires/Allignment go from there...Sears seriously sucks...read the thread in "Product review and vendors" section...
Sears is good for two things: Buying craftsman tools, and exchanging craftsman tools....(maybe three things if you count using thier restroom when the mall one is full..:toothless )

1/4" directly in and out, I think that's just the movement in the axleshafts because of the c clips.
