I'm looking for some assistance or insight into these things. I picked up a couple of these on sale last week. I haven't installed them yet and now I'm confused on how I should adjust them.
This first pictures show it from the front and it says to bottom out the bolt when turning it on:
This next picture shows how much thread is left when I have tightened it pretty good by hand. I might be able to get another turn and a half out of it but that's it:
So... what's the deal here? I'll never be able to bottom out that nut without breaking something. Should I just go as tight as I can or should I be adjusting the bottom nut so I can bottom out the top one?
I have friction type sway controllers too. The bottom adjustment screw on mine sticks out about 1/4" from the back of the welded nut. I never adjusted it from the factory setting. Just tighten the top one up as much as you can by hand and you are good to go. If its too slack then release the top and give the bottom screw another turn in, re-tighten the top. I use two of them as well and they work real great! I'm from SASK too!
