Again, Its a question of judgement/experience (of which I am lacking on both counts). I put my rear top shock nuts on and as Geezer said, only enough to "slightly" compress the bushings. There is only about 1/4" of thread showing over the nut. When I bounce the car up and down I can see the bushing plate flex a bit. Did I do it right?
Thanks
