Strut Rod Bushing assembly
Looking at the bushing assembly attached at the front end of the strut rod, I see where I have a gap between the bushing and the chassis.
If I let the car roll slowly backwards, punch the brakes and watch, the wheel moves forwards like there is too much slop in there.
The sleeves that go inside the bushings, is there a dimension for these?
I see where the shop manual says to shorten the inner one to not be longer than the outer one.
I am wondering if the sleeves are both too long.
I have the blue poly bushings installed at this point.
