the play is just a general-in every direction type of play. They just weren't tight,,ya know? I figured a little is normal, so I put everything back together. The color was definitely darker than straw..maybe a dark straw. I probably should have put new ones but I'll just ride on these for a week and see if they make any noise..If so, I could bust it out quick next saturday now that I know what I'm doing. It sure feels good to have it done though and it rides better already for sure.
thanks for all your help, you rock! Have a good thanksgiving!
