Sad looking bucket

Step 1

Step 2

Here's the cause. Not a bad idea to check the lock nuts any time your wheels are off. I just got the caps for the other side but now I'm waiting on the adjusting bolt to come in!

Nice and snug

A little dusty but perfect

I hope this helps someone down the line.
Thanks for spending the time to share this.
