Subject:Installation Kit 4434 U-Bolt Interference with Overload Leaf Springs

Solution:When installing 4434 kits manufactured before July 2008, you must trim the lower leg of the U-bolt to eliminate a possible interference with the leaf spring. Leave at least 2 (two) threads of U-bolt showing after the nut has been torqued to the proper specification.
