I had to replace the rear pivot bolt (bolt right below where there rear wheel locks into the frame), so I pulled the other bolt to match it up at the shop. My question is ....should this bolt be tourqued down hard or should it be semi loose to allow flex. Also where do the washers go( I believe there is only one per bolt)? On the inside of the nut or bolt or inside the pivot itself? If anyone who own's a stumpjumper could give me some tips or a pic that would be great. It seemed when it was loose I started damaged the frame and when it was tight it affected the rear end negativly. Im not sure which it is.
