For those running OME shocks..

Can someone confirm that the can on top of the front shocks (the protective covers) are supposed to spin and that there should be no bulge of the bushings.

Every other shock I have ran you knew they were tight when the bushings began to bulge a bit, but the nut is as tight as I can get it and there is no bulge and I can still spin the "can" by hand.

Thanks in advance!

I added a couple washers to get the bulge.

Same here. No bulge, but tight and spinning cans.

Geez... that almost sounds like a TP thread title...
