If they are not rusty bad they should be fine.
1. Adjust the height of your rear feet or shanks [ same thing just different names] with the top clamp to get them the same height as the fronts. Do this on level ground with the lift set to just let the feet touch the ground. .
2. Then adjust the bottom clamps up until there is no slack in the spring, go 1 inch farther and tighten them down.
3. make sure your sweeps are not worn out [ not enough point on the end] if so replace them , a cub should have an 8 inch sweep on the rear.
4. Adjust the angle of the shank [ the bolt on the back side of the shank or foot as some call them] to get the amount of furrow you want left in the row.
you should be good to go then
All others pay cash
