Control arm bushing question

In the process of replacing my upper and lower control arm bushings, 73/87 style, and have a question I need help with. After installing the bushing on one side of the arm, I slid the shaft into the bushing and it seems sloppy. Like at least 10-20 mils or more. Is the fit of the shaft to the inner sleeve supposed to be a press fit or tight fit or should it move around easily? Thanks!

Re: Control arm bushing question

It will move some and will tighten up when you get it all pressed in and the ends pulled up tight.
