2008; Is there any benefit to installing the rear axle from the right side? I know it comes from the factory with the cotter pin on the right side. Is there a right or wrong answer or proven technique that anyone has?
Generically speaking this is a hitch pin. Got it at Tractor Supply. Used a small zip tie at the end for extra security.Speaking of which, my cotter pin is half broken from the last time I took it out. Does anyone use something else (garage leftovers of any kind) vs buying a new pin?

I have bad luck in life, and if something odd/unlikely to happen happens - it happens to me. So, having learned through life, I try to play by the rules. :ashamed0001:Has anybody ever had the pin bound up from the axle nut moving? Anyone? Bueller?
I'm thinking it's a lawyer thing and I'm (gulp) running without one, ohh... yea danger is my middle name, well actually it's William but you know... :35a:
It's not a tractor parts store. It's just a hardware/farm store that's named Tractor Supply..I just don't know where there is a tractor parts store around here for the other 'part'.
AWESOME! Thanks for clarifying, and thanks for the URL. And you're right - it's definitely a good reason for a ride!! :26a:
