    New seatstay pivots are stiff

    Replaced my seatstay pivots and bushings with a new set Greg sent me and noticed that it doesnt slide on its own even when the shock is not mounted.. I loosened the bolts to check if it was overtorqued but to no avail.there is also a squeaking sound when i cycle the suspension up and down particularly on the left seatstay pivot when tightened..breaking in?bushings were greased and was able to ride it 2days ago.

    Call Greg at Turner.

    In my experience this could be either 1) a slightly too tight fit between the pivot axle and bushing, or 2) a pivot axle that is slightly too long.

    Both pretty easily rectified.

    @kosmo- pivot axle meaning the short shaft with spiral grooves and not the male and female clevis bolts right? Yup will drop him a mail. Thanks!
