Are we talking aftermarket bushings or...?? I believe there's a "tack welded in place" washer you're supposed to remove to install the LCA bushings..

As previously requested in this thread, pics would help a LOT!

You say you're reusing the OEM bushing shells in the LCA of an IRS? Are these Poly bushings? Because a Delrin bushing does NOT reuse the OEM bushing shells.

Either way, more information is needed from you to give you the assistance you're looking for.

He's asking if anyone have bushings/shells come out of the arms or work there way out? Or there suppose to be that way? Possible factory didn't press them in all the way? Asking bushing shell flange should flush with the arm. He's re-using bushing shells then he's using poly bushings.

Someone said something about removing tacked on washer in lower arm subframe mount that would be true if he was using 03/04 cobra subframe. He posted he's using 99 subframe

Thanks for helping clarify that.. derry96gt we will collectively help find the right answer but we really need some pictures to verify a few things. I will pm you my cell # and you can text them if that would help out. I promise not to send nudes of DropTopPony
