I just wanted to establish a basic principle that will serve most situations best: "Load it before you torque it".
I would also add: "Then check it after a day or two!"


Excellent practices, both of them!

Replaced my stock U & LCA bushings on the stock parts with Prothane polyurethane bushings over 3 years ago- no noticeable change in NVH, no issues either.

And while I have no intention of getting into the "real Shelby" debate I would like to remind folks that Carroll said many times that if he puts his name on a car then its a Shelby.
