    Only do one side at a time and make sure you torque them to spec -- I think it is 75 ft-lb. Did they come with a packet of grease? If so, apply some to each end of the bushing before you install it on the car. If they didn't come with grease, synthetic caliper grease is a nice substitute.

    here is one tip,,,or how shoudl I say this "how to install LCA with ball joints and not break your teeth at the same time"...

    when you install them the LCA's, wear safety glasses and at no times have your head directly underneth the lca's OR any part you remove from your car.

    when my LCA slipped out of place (dont ask) it swung down and smasked my teeth,,,,I spit out what I thought was dirt and grime,,,but they were my teeth,,,,

    Shitty story,,,but one that others can learn from,,,

    And to think I have not been partof an inbreeding program and all,,shucks folks,,,you gotta be safe when workin underneth them darn autoz
