I was just told that the upper control arm was painted prior to the install of the dog bone, bushings, cup washers and bolts. However it appears that crg comments states the the upper arms was paint with all items installed except for the ball joints and those are bare metal or possible paint as not to rust. Can anyone verify which is the way to go. I do hope crg is correct. I have the dome style with the seven weld spots as my car is a 68 ss rs bb. Thanks for any help in this matter.
