Non-greaseable bolts fit inside a self-lubricating nylon bush and do not need grease. If your springs have nylon bushes, it is not advisable to change your pin to greaseable.

The knurl under the head has a particular purpose. The knurl locks into the shackle plate to help prevent the bolt from spinning during spring compressions. Broken welds are a good sign the bolts need replacement.

The knurl is welded onto the shackle plate on standard tandem and outback trailer springs to stop the bolt from turning. With a rotating bolt in the shackle plate, wear significantly increases.

How to tighten suspension bolts.

  • Tighten the bolt until home.
  • Back off 1/4 turn.
  • You need a small space between your shackle plates and spring; otherwise, you will develop an annoying squeak.
  • This squeak is due to no tolerance between shackle plates and spring.
