Washers on LCA Bolts?

Should there be washers on the Lower Control Arm bolts? There were none on mine when I took it apart. I've seen some with, some without. Thanks!

mine had none, and when you buy the lower control arm bolt kit from rick's, there are none in the package. i think they are not necessary and not correct as far as originality goes.

Re: Washers on LCA Bolts?

Originally they came without ,I just finished my suspension, and I added washer's to the bolt head and to the nut to spread out the load ,with all new hardware, if they were really needed I am sure G M would of added them ,but I analyze things and figured out to use them, and they look good too ,used all grade 8 cad. plated hardware,....Happy Motoring
