    It's obviosly the pivot. Shock is fine. There was lateral play in the pivot. Anywho I took the whole rear triangle off and will check it tonight. Are there any shims or anything in your haros pivot?

    I'm probably going to email haro and see what they say...

    Don't let it get loose. If you run the bike with slop in it then the bearings and bushing will get bad enough that they can't be repaired. A shim is just going to be a ghetto fix, do it right and don't risk your frame.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
