    You really do need a large washer between the forward bushing and the toe link, to prevent the LCA from shifting forward.

    I honestly dont think there is room for one, Id have to make something for the rear one, similar to rico's to go over the part of the bushing that sticks out of the arm and between the pocket.

    Thats why I did it in the rear like that, I did the rear bushing washers to keep arms in one place, it will not move. It is not the front that is preventing the arm from sliding but the rear. If your lip in the front tears you will have movement for sure. It sucks you aligned it already....Maybe you can fix it and go back to them and tell them they did not do it right so you don't pay twice.

    You used a different kit then I did, I used the prothane kit and you used the energy kit. So maybe thats why it fits the stock bore mn12, maybe they are designed without having to reuse the stock sleeves... Good to know, as my anny does not have alum FN10 arms.
    Keep in eye on tire wear. For now enjoy less wheel hop

    Did a close inspection on them the other day. Looks like the day I installed them. Hopefully it stays that way. They recieved a ton of abuse this summer
