Torsion axle shift on Ultra lite FW

Well, that was sooner than expected. I'm doing early spring maintenance on my '16 2650ws and found my axles with the oft reported tilt in their flanges. It wasn't horrible, about 1/4" on the front axle and 1/8" on the rear.

It's no wonder, as I broke them loose pretty easily with a standard 1/2" ratchet. After jacking back in place, I gave the bolts all my 1/2" impact had..ok not quite. Those fasteners are rated for about 120.

I've got the lift blocks from Dexter and haven't decided if I'm putting them on yet, but if these axles shift again I'll put a couple tacks on each flange.
