When you are putting the A arms to the car, is there any washers between chasis and bushing or between chasis and bolt and do you use anykind of locking washer? I dont know this because when I get my car front suspention and sheet metal was of the car.
Thanks.

No washers, no lockwashers. Crimped self locking nuts are used.

The nut has a lip on the top of it and it is squeezed in on two sides. This makes the nut hold tight to the bolt and not come loose.

The rocker arm nuts on a Chevy are the same type nut, just different size.
A nylock nut would be my second choice. It has a nylon ring on it to keep the nut from vibrating and loosening.
Here is a photo of a "deformed thread locknut" this is the same as the "crimped nut"
