Okay, well I think I'm sold on the meyle bushings...so a follow up question, they sell them separately, not in the bracket...they say I need a new bracket, but do you know that they wouldn't fit in OE lemforder lolipops?

Also, you said in your thread to only mount the bushing right at the end of the control arm...and I'm sure I've seen them pushed up a good bit more...sort of figured they move to proper position after getting put down on the ground (which is why we lose those rings on OE bushings, I guess).

Finally, I believe that one ball joint nut is a pita to get at without a ratchet open ended wrench. You know the one...believe rt. outer balljoint? If so, you recall the size of that? If I decide to DIY this, sounds like that would be very handy to have.

Can't wait...about time I refreshed it!
