I've gone thru and replaced all of the "soft goods" pieces of my front suspension ('71 Series II) and have finally got it all reassembled. I should have bought L & R stamps and stamped everything as I took it off because, ultimately, I got it all mixed up but finally sorted in the end. All back together now but a couple of questions. The compression rods that locate the transverse link have tightened up at different locations. The left side is even with the nut, the right side is about a half inch further out. I measured the distance between the lower control arm and the frame mount on each side and it's the same. Is it possible the rods are two different lengths? I forgot to check and it's too much work to pull them off and check. Could it be something else I may have missed? Second, when I torqued up the big bolt that secures the transvers link, I noticed the bushing no longer moves. DUh! So the suspension movement is only the flexing of the inner rubber. So when I torqued the bolt, I first jacked the suspension up to it's normal operating point so the rubber in the bushing is sort of splitting the difference between operating position and assembly position. Does this sound right?
