    I’m rebuilding the suspension on my 72 Challenger. On the LCAs, should there be any slack in the pivot area? I’ve got about an 1/8 inch or so of side to side movement on the torsion adjustor arm. Is this acceptable or should there be none? I don’t believe replacing the bushing will help will it? Thanks!!

    Just make sure that your adjuster blocks still fit after you clamp it all together. Some aftermarket adjuster blocks are wider and won't fit "in the groove/notch" when the lca slop is repaired.

    Ok, thanks for the tip. I plan to reuse the original adjuster blocks. They’re seen to be in good shape.
