Another 78 monte question about front lower A-arm bushings

Not open for further replies.


Sep 2, 2017
When installing an A-arm the front bushing fits snug in the bracket but the rear bushing has about a 1/4 gap in it. Basically,Is it supposed to have a gap in it and supported by the front or is there supposed to be spacers in the back bushing?

I had no such problems installing Lower A-arms in my 78. Both bushings were a tight fit front and back, but then again i went with aftermarket UMI lower A-arms. I dont think it should be loose, maybe the bracket is a little bent?
