Question Rattle in "The Beast's" Git-a-long

Been hearing a rattling in my LT's back wheel that I finally traced to the rear brake disk. The bolts are tight; I can move the disk slightly back and forth but can't rotate it.

Anyone have similar experience? If so, how'd you fix it?

Disk is of the floating type and yes, they rattle. Some worse than others.


I think probably replacment of the conical washers holding the disk would tighten it back up .

Thanks Doug,

Didn't think of that - mind's been on vacation lately I guess.
