Hi,

I'm in the process of installing some aftermarket front upper control arms for camber adjustment. However the ones I've bought don't appear to move freely once tightened like the OEM ones does with needle rollers.

 

Have I've done something incorrectly and is that going to be an issue? Or should I just tighten them with the car at loaded ride height and expect the flex in the bushings to suffice for the suspension travel?

 

Cheers

Timmy

Are you talking about the balljoints?

 

If so, that's correct. They aren't supposed to move freely at all. They will move with some force so you can install them

The OEM ball joints are shagged on your old ones. It's normal.

You have gone back to old school type bushes. Are they polyurethane or rubber? What colour if poly. Poly type use a molybdenum disulphide rich grease to lubricate and should not be over compressed but should fill the space available. Rubber type are compressed to fill the cavity. Yes to tightening with weight on suspension either way.

Just regular rubber by the looks of it. Bit of a shame to "downgrade" in that respect but couldn't get enough camber with the oem ones.

 

Thanks for clarifying, I'll just tighten them up with the suspension loaded then. Cheers guys!
