The washers in middle of picture act as a spring. They are Bellville washers ( cup shaped ). In the Deere online parts book it shows 6 of the cup washers and 1 flat washer. They cost $41.19 each (N317062) I have replaced some on a 4720 sprayer as they break and fall out. If you take it apart you will see that it only allows a very small amount of movement before the bolt stops travel. I would suggest that you make a tube spacer to replace the washers. The bumpers that sit inside the rockers sometimes break the steel plate inside the rocker and allow a lot of free play in the booms.
