INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR FRONT & REAR CONTROL ARM BUSHING KITS

(1) PRESS THE STOCK RUBBER BUSHING OUT OF THE CONTROL ARM.

(2) CHECK THE FIT OF THE SLEEVES TO THE CONTROL ARM.   IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO RUN A FLYLAP OR CARTRIDGE ROLL THROUGH THE CONTROL ARM BORE TO ALLOW THE SLEEVE TO GO IN EASILY.

(3) PRESS THE SLEEVE CONTAINING THE SPHERICAL BEARING INTO THE CONTROL ARM.  THE BEARING SHOULD FACE THE INSIDE OF THE CONTROL ARM TUBE.  

 

(4) PRESS THE RETAINING SLEEVE INTO THE CONTROL ARM WITH THE SMALLER INSIDE DIAMETER AGAINST THE BEARING.

 

(5) TACK WELD BOTH SLEEVES - TOP AND BOTTOM - TO HELP RETAIN THEM.  THIS IS BEST DONE WITH A TIG WELDER TO MINIMIZE THE HEAT TRANSFER TO THE BEARING.  ALSO KEEP THE WELDS SMALL SO THEY CAN BE EASILY CUT TO ALLOW CHANGING OF THE BEARING IF NECESSARY.

 

(6) PLACE THE BOLT ADAPTER BUSHINGS IN PLACE AND REINSTALL THE CONTROL ARM ON THE CAR.
