    Truck has play in drivers side swivel bearing (top). Started to dig into it today a little, and quickly noticed that the top pin bolts were very loose.

    I feel like an idiot creating a thread on how to use a hose clamp, but in the case of ESR3607 / CN100308, I've been defeated. I'm sure there's a name for this type but I've been unable to find it. I've tried various techniques to get them to clamp and hold but nothing works so far.

Not sure how active this forum but it’s worth a try...
