yeah, i wasn't worried about anything falling out. i'm not an idiot. I get how it goes together, and how it works. it was my first time pulling my wheel off. i torqued it to specs, and it rolls fine. i just wasn't sure what the grooves were for, and if they were supposed to be facing a certain direction. like i said, i checked the manual, but didn't see anything about it. it just said, "make sure you put the spacers in correctly." that made me nervous. i guess they were talking about the correct spacer going on the correct side?
