Weather is good so it's time to look for any more QUALITY or lack of issues, I came across this, one slide has a little float at the ram but this one has a lot, thing is I don't know which one is correct or if they should be loose at all.

I would not think they should be loose like this but going to check mine. It's at the storage yard right now so I can't just go out in the driveway to check.

It's not loose. That is a slide adjustment for in and out travel and allows for even travel of the slide if there is more than one attached to the slide.

That's a through frame slide. On page 16 of this manual it tells you how to adjust the nuts. They're not supposed to be snug against the bracket on both sides.

Based on the rust pattern on the bolt, it looks like that lower nut has moved recently.

They should be tight against both sides of the bracket.

Using general engineering practices as a guide, if it was suppose to be that way there would be another locking nut on the bottom like above. Doesn't look right to me either.

Agree with Bama. Read the manual to check the adjustments. It's got a lock nut on one side and 2 nuts to lock on the inner. Lack of corrosion on the inside is due to movement in and out.

Look closely, the bottom nut is a nylock nut and therefore a locking nut. It is correct.
