    I fiqure JATO engineers used the spring on the brake arm to absorb shock and vibration when over applying the brake causing the truck to immediately skid and do a 360. I am just wondering, within 2 months what problems if any, were most of you experiencing from the shock being transferred to other areas of the truck. IE servo,tranny, etc.

    why o why do you want something in the brake system that is flexable, you dont put up with air in the brake system on your street truck, and will disassemble it self the first time you use it?

    My friend's Jato was doing the same thing. I replaced the bent plastic arm with a metal one that connects to the cam rod. Works like a charm. I think the gas tubing will just bend another cam arm. Remember boys, you don't have to force it to make it work. Ha! Its all about adjustment and getting that cam to slide in and out correctly.
