Working on freshening the front and rear suspensions of my ‘80 Sprint whilst I await the arrival of my brake adjuster from Alun and had a question about the thick washers on the upper pivot bolt on the front upper wishbone bracket...
Per the Rimmers diagram, four washers are called for, basically one on each end of the two upper bushes, however the prior arrangement had only three, with the very forward-most one omitted, presumably for increased caster angle is all I can figure. In any event, when I went to put everything back together with new SuperPro poly bushes, I cannot get the upper bracket through bolts (the three at the top) to align with the holes in the inner fender well. If I remove the other forward washer, everything lines up fine, so I’m wondering if I’m ok to omit this washer and just leave the two on the rearmost bush or if none are to be used with polybushes or what? Seems that they ought to be in there, or at least some thinner ones if nothing else but wanted to ask the group before I button everything up.
Thanks for any ideas.
