Front urethane bushing installation - which goes where?


Recommended Posts

Ok - I've been scouring the archives for a good photo of an installation of the control arm urethane bushings.

When I purchased them they came with 4 total bushings (2 per side). Two of them have a slightly larger "shoulder" and the other is slightly smaller "shoulder". For the most part they are identical otherwise.

Can someone walk me through it in terms of which urethane bushing goes on the inner (nearest the engine) and which goes on the outer (next to the strut tube)? I believe that the wider "shoulder" bushing goes on the inner.

I can post a photo too, I know it will help but wondering if someone has been down this road recently and knows the answer off hand.

Reason why I ask is that the "outer" bushing with the "smaller" shoulder now seems to squeeze in too far. I may have them reversed but that doesn't seem right...

Thoughts appreciated! I'll keep searching too.
