Light racing UCA question

I had LR UCAs installed a few weeks ago and I am hearing noises from the front end that sound like it is shifting around. I also noticed that the guy that installed them left 4 washers in the box that were not used. Does anyone know if these are soposed to be used??? I have a 2011 txPro if that makes a difference.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

There are spacer washers that go on the inner side of the UCA / bolt connection

I'll find a pic

when he installed it, I am pretty sure he just used the hardware that was on the stock UCAs

Actually, come to think of it, I did have a leftover one because I forgot to replace one of the stock washers.

x2...on a semi-related note, did they just change the torque specs to 150 ft lbs?

Should use washers they provide plus the 2 on each side stock.

Here are 2 pics of mine installed. Step ten tells you to load the suspension before tightening the upper bolt completely.

I found I had a popping type noise coming from one side. It was that I didn't have it tight enough. Mainly could be heard going into or out of reverse or slow off camber turns.

They are the 4 smaller ones. is it possible that the stock ones could have been reused?

Do the stock UCA's even have those spacers ?

There is a total of 8 smaller spacers between the two UCA's , are the inner ones or the outers missing ? You should be able to see the outers if they are there .

No the stock ones only have the two outer washers. You need to use those and the provided washers. Should be NO washers left over.

Like OZ said, I don't think stock has them. First thing you need to do is check the diagram OZ linked and check for the washers. You can see one in both of the pics I attached.

Since I skipped step ten, I got my wheels up, loosened the long bolt a little, set it back down and retorqued. It is hard reaching past the tire, but that took care of it for me.
