I had that problem on a few installs I have done. I get one guy to pull on one side and another on the other and then have someone slip in the washers. 3 man job. Lol

I put a factory screw jack between the bushings and spread them a little. (like between the tips of the "U".) The washers slide right in, and the bolt pulls everything back together anyway. I also had to do this on one of the TC heimed uppers. I think their jig is a little on the tight side.

I swear I'm not trying to stir shit at all, I just want to confirm that even the trusted brands have some fitment issues too?

No, an upper arm flexes a little bit, they are talking about a tight fit to get washers to fit which is fixed by pulling with your hands. One side of a lower arm being too thick to fit into the pocket for the arm is much different and a much bigger headache to solve. Your talking about hours of fab work

I would say that the TC arms are so high tolerance and precise that assembly is difficult. There is maybe .015 tolerance, making sliding the inner washers in tough, especially with fat urathane bushings in there. Since I am an expert at hillbilly fabrication I completely fucked up their high tolerance part with a screw jack to make assembly easier. It worked. I also bet if their fabricator saw me do it he would cringe and throw slag hammers at me.

Factory has tolerances, aftermarket manufacturers have tolerances, welding affects each part differently, even in a fixture. Add all that together, sometimes things are a little off.

Is your float the arm style ? If so it won't work with the foam ....
