ok, so just to be clear, the directions on that link say to loosen the right rear axle nut, but not the left? so im only adjusting the bolt on the left side and the axle nut on the right?? i read somewhere that i need to adjust and loosen both sides? not true?

Step 3 -
Loosen the rear right axle nut with the 27mm. DO NOT REMOVE THE NUT.

Step 4 - Once loose, go to the left side and use the 8mm socket on the adjusting bolt as shown on picture 2.

you have 1 axle nut

2 adjusters (1 on each side) you have to tighten/loosen.
