hey guys, installed Moog 5606 in the front and K160044 in the rear . Torqued control arms to 70ft lbs with weight on them, springs are installed properly (triple checked) white mark is top top and bottom seated properly and lower control arm hole is visible. The pass front is 3/4 of an inch higher then driver side front. Rear is leveled. These springs have 20 miles on them, does it take more miles to settle???

OK, I looked up the global west arms.

I was thinking of the stock ones with the serrations on the bushings.

Actually they are calling them Del-a-lum, but the real del-a-lums had an aluminum bushing and a nyliner bearing in between.

Anyway, good luck, should be something simple.

I never had an issue with these bushings. Car was always leveled. It is very possible the torque is to high for them . Tomorrow i will loosen the lower the control arm bolts and see what happens
