Re: Control Arm Bushings - How tight should these be?

Hello thegrandiman,

It's been so long since I went through that process I have a hard time remembering exactly what I did. I do know I had the same feeling that you stated, "it would be nice to know I'm doing it right".

One thing that does stand out in my mind was centering the shaft between the control arm so that the amount of threads was distributed between both ends. Then I tried to screw each side in as evenly as possible. I believe this applied to both top and bottom shafts. I'm going from memory so I hope this is right.

I still would like to know how freely the arms should move up and down when torqued to the spec.
