I got my new lower control arm and end links today and have a question. When installing the end links do they just tighten down solid or is there a certain spot to tighten them?

Greetings, Ymurf;

Sorry you seem to be getting ignored. Factory style end links are tightened until the nut runs into the shoulder, You'll notice the threaded section is smaller than the shank of the bolt. Then torque to 6-12 ft-lbs.
