Nope, but keep in mind that NyLocks are supposed to be 1 time use.

Don't use lock washers on shackles, go buy "toplocks"...a locking nut that is all steel and does the same thing as a nylock, only better. They can be found at many hardware stores and spring shops.

yes you can tell these nuts by the oval appearance on the top of the nut (where the nylon would be on a nylon locking nut)
