    I don't get it it's not my first cutting edge change and from same shop. New hardware cleaned the mating edge so it sits flat and the thing catches and bounces like hell! Any advice? I have no feet and never have. 2000 Silverado with a minute mount 2

    Is it on backwards?

    Inside out?

    Outside in?

    Upside down?

    How about a pic or two?

    I don't know how to add pics to this site With my phone. Haven't tried flipping it over yet. But don't see the point? Fits just like last one did.

    I was kidding a bit. Try a high speed drop to burn the edge in.

    Look for weak or broken springs on trip edge. New point of leverage now with new edge will show weak springs. Sounds like it's tripping causing the jumping

    Did you burn the edge in? I was told to drive in reverse for awhile with the blade down to burn the edge in.
