    1st gen jekyll shock replacement

    I replaced the shock on my jekyll and I am wondering how tight the bolt should be torqued? I took notice that it wasn't overly tight when I removed it. Unless I am missing something the shock is essentially pivoting about the threaded bolt. Is this correct? I would think that the threads would chew up the shockmount. Please enlighten me...

    The silver bushings MUST rotate freely in the shock bodies bushing (plastic or metal shelled DU).

    The bolt needs to be tightened to standard torque for the fastener size.

    The silver bushing should clamp tight and the shock must pivot on the bushing. Nothing should pivot on the bolt.
