@Cliff. Thanks for the tips. I suppose some lube should help. although it was only installed 2 weeks ago, so I don’t think it would seize yet.
@Jeff. Thanks for the tips. I hear ya about not overtighten the nuts. It was written all over the plate and packaging to tighten to 18 ft/lb. I have medium size torque wrench to tighten it.
Jeff so you’re saying to jack it up, loosen the plate nut, drop the car back to the ground, bounce it, jack it up again, then slide the plate?
