    Suspension issue.

    I am so frustrated with this issue!!!
    So few days ago I heard some noises under my car, I had the feeling it was a broken LCA or a bolt.
    So the nuts on the LCA were lose.
    I thight them up, the noise is gone.
    few miles later, I heard the same noise, I check the nuts they are loosen again!! I dis this 5 times already.
    I even put a second nut behind the other one and still no luck!!

    What could it be? The nuts are new, the bolt looks good, everything is normal!
    It happens only on the drivers side LCA, this happened after 500-600 miles since I installed this

    Are you using lock washers?

    Remove the nut and make sure that the threads are not stripped or damaged. Then, use either or both a lock washer and blue Loc-Tite on it. Make sure everything is clean and dry before applying the Loc-Tite. Sounds like the suspension travel is turning the bolt and loosening the nut. Is the bolt seized in the bushing?

    +1 on that, the bolts should be torqued to 60 lbs. torque to nuts.

    The thread on the bolts looks good, the nuts are new, in this case the only problem I could think of is the bolt, even tho it looks ok. I was using the stock nuts, I bought some new ones at the home depot,
    I was gonna use loc tite for that. But. How come on the other side I don't have the same issue??
    I thighten the bolts very tight. But as I can see that's not the problem here!
