No real resolution

We did take it to SMBW and they assured us that it was fixed when they rolled it outside at 4:45 pm. It came back even more off centered than when we took it there and the jerking/noise is still as...

Bolts are ok on top

Found this gem while searching for problem areas. Think it was an install deal as it is nowhere near where the jerking/noise is happening. There were no metal shavings anywhere in the tracks for...
