Light Racing Upper Controll Arms shipped with missing parts

So being from Canada, it took over a month for me to get my Light Racing UCA's. So today I FINALLY went to install them, and after hoisting up the truck and removing the wheels, I found that the package was missing parts. No bushing spacers, washers or castle nuts. SHIT!

Question: What can I reuse from the stock setup that I need? I don't want to wait another month for washers and spacers. Thanks

I would call them and make them overnight the missing parts, since it was a mistake on their part.

Yeah I'm waiting for a reponse from the dealer. Also I didn't know they were made in China. Knowing that, I would have went with something made in the USA. Oh well.

Ordered from Wheelers. They were held up at the border for over a month, and they didnt even open the box....

Damn, China huh? ef those.

Bummer deal about the customs thing for you guys, you've got it twice as bad as I do.
From what I hear wheelers has great customer service so hopefully they'll take care of you.
