Default HWH Landing Foot to Fit 1999 LXi

Somehow the rear curb side landing foot on my 1999 LXi got knocked off leaving the springs behind. The landing foot is rectangular with the corners trimmed at 45 degree angles. I called HWH for a replacement and they sent me a round foot, saying that the rectangular one is no longer made and the round one was the proper replacement. The round one fits in place fine. The only problem is that the steerable tag axle allows the tire to come in contact with the foot when I back up and turn the wheel all the way to the right. The tire catches the edge of the foot and flips it up and off the end of the piston. When I start to go forward the edge of the tire tread catches the foot and it bangs against the cylinder. I have tried trimming the foot where it contacts the tire and that has helped a lot, but it still gets pushed off occasionally. I would like to find the proper NOS or used replacement.

Thanks,

Is it possible to swap a front pad with the round one on the rear?

The front pads are about 10" square, the rears are 12". Lots more weight on the back end.

Probably will have to buy the entire assembly from Colaws.

Since your original rectangular foot and the round replacement foot both got knocked off, maybe the problem is actually with the steerable tag axle or jack alignment, etc?
