What's wrong with my LCA?
The manual states that the bushing might need to be 'persuaded' to get between the frame brackets.

I have a gap on both sides.


Can I still use them??
Who can help?

Cheers,

Olivier

Isn't the inner ring of the bushing supposed to touch the frame mounts when it's bolted tight?

The mount would bend to the inside...?!

I was thinking about the washer too, but wasn't sure.

I don't know about using the washer. If I remember mine....the bushings have knurled ends that dig into the steel frame. If you use washers, doesn't that defeat the purpose of the knurls? I don't know if the knurls are necessary, but they are there for a reason.

Anyway mine was a fairly tight fit. The openings weren't as tight as they were not square to the bushings.

I guess that doesn't help much, but that was my experience.
