Picked up a used Blindside and stripped it down to inspect everything and I'm having an issue with rear shock slop. I think it's a V1 Blindside, the front shock mount is the button head bolt, not the countersunk type...?
When I get that bolt torqued to spec, it seizes the shock in place and doesn't allow it to pivot anymore.
When I insert and torque the rear mounting bolt, I have some decent slop in the rear end when no load is on the shock. Not side to side slop, but up and down. It's as if the bolt isn't large enough to accommodate the shock bushings. Am I missing an insert or spacer?

Sorry for the dumb question. Slop is in the DU bushing. Will replace with RWC needle bearings and hopefully sorted. Feel free to delete this thread...
