the front shocks come with two small red bushings and two metal washers for compression to install on the top side. No problem with assembly but how tight am I suppose to put this. I can turn the wrench with very little force and compress the red bushings, and if I keep turning them, very easily again I might add, I can eventually almost compress those bushing until they are bulging.
Those bushings are different from the ones I removed. The ones removed were wider and flatter, made of a harder rubber. These have a smaller diameter, are taller, and much, much softer. The ones I removed you can pretty much tell when you are starting to compress, but these new ones, no idea. If I tighten just enough to keep their shape, I'm worried it won't be enough torq on the nut to keep it from backing off. If I tighten enough torq to where it starts giving some resistance, like it's good and snug, what you would expect, the bushings are really compressed. I have no idea if this is good or bad but it seems the bushings are being compressed way to much and I should back the nut off, but backing it off and leaving the bushings in a good visual state just seems to leave the nut too loose.
