    I posted on here last weekend about my spindle going out, anyway got it fixed- sounds alot better. So I started cutting today, and the cut is aggravating me.

    It seems to be cutting a fraction of an inch lower on the left side than the right side (this was the side with the bad spindle). It was doing this before I got the spindle replaced also. The deck is perfectly level, and tire psi is ok.

    What gives? It also seems like one blade stripes in one directions while the other goes the opposite way.

    I'd have the dealer check to make sure everything lines up correctly.

    It sounds like the deck could be slightly bent around one of the spindles. rotate the blades around and make sure the blade tips are level. you will have to spin each blade around independantly, may have to take the belt loose. if they are not level on every rotation then the deck is bent.
