Ok see if you can follow me....on the rear dampner hub, the thing that holds the "hockey pucks", I located some large allen head bolts. The bolts face to the inside of the rear wheel. They are part of the rear hub. My question is what are they for and are they supposed to be wicked loose? I was able to turn them by hand. This worried me so I tightned them using a large allen wrench. I do not know how to post photos or else I would. Any thought on what they are would be great..

yes that would be them....I was detailing my hub when two of the bolt began spinning freely so I tightened them. I think I should make sure they are super tight. Why the hell would they loosen up? I have never had them off or even touched them. Just another headache..

Thanks for the photo and for understanding what I was talking about.

The next time you or we lol have your hub apart those need to be tighten and then weld the flanges on the inside of the hub that they are attached to. Simple and Permanent fix!

Well if you would have fixed it right the first time we would not have to keep fixing it.....hahaha

One of these years I will surprise you guys. I will show up with a rex that will not have to be repaired the minute I take it off the trailer. I am not saying it will be next year, but one of these years.
