I'm doing a knuckle overhaul and I'm curious about the split ring that goes inboard of the knuckle and is followed by a rubber ring, a felt wiper and the half-moon retainers.
Does the split ring fit completely inside the recess in the knuckle? One side does, but slightly overlaps and the other side doesn't want to compress enough to fit. Also, my kit came with four of the rubber rings, please tell me they were just extras. The FSM calls for only one per side.
Thanks,
Ed

Ed, the split rings you refer to fit into the first groove below the inboard surface of the knuckle and give the rubber and the felt a solid backing. I have never heard of a ring that fit so poorly. Perhaps you are trying to push them further in than the first groove.? :eek:

And yes, there is only one rubber per side!

Mark, thanks for the reply. I'll dick with it tomorrow and see, I may have more questions. Any luck on some 2.5" springs? Erik and Alan have been real lifesavers with the SST and advice on this whole project.
