    Default Control arm rebuild

    Hey guys, I'm finally of the downhill side of the off frame restoration of my '74 coupe. I have rebuilt the control arms and I am wondering if I should wait until the engine, transmission, body is back on the frame before I tighten down the upper/lower control arm shaft caps onto their new bushings? Thanks

    Yes you want to have weight on the wheels before tightening,it will keep it from over stressing the bushings!Same go's for the rear trailing arms!!
    It's got so it seems to me that the Internet has created a lot more Horses A$$'s than we have Horses!
