I have the 2001 27hp LC 60" Lazer. For those who have owned them for years, or have bunches of hours, I ask you this: My deck support struts,( they go from the rear of the deck back to a heim joint around the rear axle). Mine are fairly loose (big end),(ie. 1/8" play) and I only have about 175 hrs on it. I grease it twice weekly as with all the greasable joints. The deck just seems to have a lot of play in it. Is there a replaceable bushing in the (big end) that attaches to the deck? Doesn't look like it from the parts manual. How much are these to replace and how long can I let them go? It just bothers me that the deck is a little loose with so few hours. Hope its not due in any way to the EZ-Striper Also, are all Lazer non-greasable caster and wheel bearings real tight? On my old Dixie, when jacked up they would spin forever! The Lazer is almost tough to turn by hand. Better to be a little snug than to have too much play I guess! Thanks in advance guys!
