,,, saw elsewhere on the site it should have zero end thrust. Appears to have 10 thou. I'll put a dial indicator on it and get it exact. Theres no way I can get to the back of the box without hanging it off the frame rail .

,,, well the first KW tech I asked says, yes it should be near zero end thrust, but he says there is no adjustment on the back of the box, between the box and the frame rail. Guess I am going to have to get it an inch off the frame rail and see for myself . Kind of annoying because the truck runs with no vibration, shake, shimmy, and the steering is fairly tight.

,,, well, low and behold, there is an adjuster back there, and I am going to take it down to one or two thou so as not to make it too tight. With my indicator I can watch the clearance come down without having to bump it and back off. I think the info is on this site, I must be posting in the wrong area.

,,, takes a three quarters wrench and some type of offset screwdriver. You have to be careful that when you tighten the jam nut that you don't wind adjuster stud too much clockwise with the tightening of the jam nut. There is a hole in my frame to get to this, but KW has it mostly covered with strengthening plates. So, I had to hang it about 3 inches away from the frame on the mounting bolts. Now if I can just get another mil outta that box.
