anybody using the swivler jack bolt from AFCO. IF so how well are they holding up. Hav ehard some people say they will wear out and get sloppy. Also are you using them on bothe ends of the spring or just one?

It is ok, but it will send the spring awkward ways as in bow it since it will go towards the side that has the most pressure. What works better is taking your standard weight jack and using a bold with a little slack in it.

i thought maybe it would get awkward with it at both ends.

Right now we have spring cups that fit loose on top of the bolt. maybe those are better anyway. gives it some room to move but limits total travel.

We use them on the front and I like them real well.....I think they freed up the car a good bit. You dont here any coil bind when you bounce the car up and down or when you are just jacking the car up off the floor.
