I have never thought about the dust measurement being an indicator of it not working right. I just figured it was the way it is. I know that for some a MR does or doesn't eliminate all chucking. I figured I was the latter. I'm very interested in how this issue runs it's course.
I have the lightest spring rates that MR uses so in going up to the next higher rate may be too stiff.
So far since MorRyde has left me on my own.. How do you tell which spring rate you have?
I know it's not going to eliminate all the chucking, but as I said earlier, if it is eliminating any then pulling with a normal pin would be unbearable.
Its at the point now of me saying this hitch stinks, because I have something to compare it to.
I don't think the folks who swear by this hitch have much weight, or have never had anything better or they haven't been pulling for very long.
I can make the chucking less (or its my imagination) if I fill the water tank.
I would have thought that would make it worse. The tank as far as I can tell isn't behind the axels but I think part of it is.
Coincidentally enough, there is another thread that just started with the exact same concern as me...plus no answer from MorRyde.
