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

They should be threaded all the way to the arm. As others have said, most important part is making sure the shaft is centered exactly on the arm - if you don't, it is going to jack with your caster settings. I just did my R30 which is the same setup as this. I greased everything before it went back together - shafts, inside and outside of caps. Got it all snug then greased it as I cycled the arms up and down, then torqued the caps.

When tight, the arms will not fall under their own weight, but I could still easily cycle them by hand.
