purchased a a set of PST Urethane suspension bushes for the mid 70's Camaro clip in my PU.
Problem is the upper front A arm bush does not seem to fit properly.
I have contacted PST and they confirm that the set I have are correct and suggested that I grind off the raised dimples to make the bush fit flush and enable the nuts to fit down far enough to expose at least 1 thread from the end.
Did as they suggested but it feels as if the bush is 'bottoming out' before I can tighten the nut down to the right spec.
Took it apart again and the internal sleeve that runs through the bush is indeed bottoming out against the cross shaft before the nut is fully engaged on the shaft.
It was at this stage I realised that the 6000mile warranty had come into play...
So, if I were to shorten the internal sleeve to give me enough room to get the nut on properly is this going to cause a problem?
If the sleeve is too short ie not up hard against to cross shaft shoulder and fat washer shown in the picture, will this allow the A arm to move backwards and forwards on the cross shaft?
Yes, I could order up the correct set but that is £70 I can use else where and if I can correct it by re engineering what I have so much the better!
Any comments and advice appreciated.
