So what gives here. I have a brand new heritage rear subframe and brackets. The the radius arms have been refurbished and I have new pins and washers etc.
One side fits OK. To confirm, once I have fitted the radius arm mounting bracket and its all fastened up should the radius arm still move quite freely of should it be quite tight and stiff to move? Does anyone have the torque value for the radius arm bracket?
The other side is giving me real problems. The bracket on its own fits well to the subframe. When I tried fitting the radius arm the bracket did not line up with the holes on the subframe at all. Going back to basics I removed the shaft from the radius arm and tried to just fit this with the inner and outer thrust washers and the bracket still does not seem to want to line up with the holes. I even tried with the old thrust washer (as these seem slightly thinner) but still no luck.
Any ideas? I'm running out of patience!
