Upper Control Arm Bolts?

I Got a 6 Inch Drop In The Front.. Anyone Make Their Own Spacers Instead Of Using a Bunch Of The Y Shaped Shims To Get The Alignment Close..

Also One Bolt Has A Slight Wobble In It, Its Brand New..
Will It Be Okay Once Its Tight? Thanks

I used the offset arm shaft when I rebuilt mine, It isn't much but I didn't have to use as many spacers as before. Got mine from RockAuto.

Re: Upper Control Arm Bolts?

Performanceonline actually sells a kit of alignment spacers that are pretty nice but kind of expensive. I am using them on my truck.

I'm guessing this is a no-go, but could standard washers be used? I suppose it would be a huge hassle to remove the control arm over and over to get the adjustment dialed in for this idea.
