Hey guys,I am getting my subframe back together and I have a couple of questions.First off,I have the frame out from under the car,and I have the spindles,springs,balljoints,tie rod ends and a 1'' sway bar from NPD in the frame after several trys.First Q.. With the 1'' sway bar in place when you turn the spindles left to right it hits the stop on one side but when you turn it the other way it hits the sway bar instead of the stop,is this normal with the frame out of the car and no weight on th front end.
Second Q.. The upper balljoint on the pass.side starts to turn so that you can't get it tightened up and get the cotter key in it.Should I untighten the bottom balljoint and tighten the 4 bolts on the upper balljoint to try to fix this or is the balljoint itself bad,any help would be appreciated ,I would like to put my new rotors,bearings,calipers and stuff on this thing and see how it looks,,thanks a lot,, Camaro BOB
