hi guys I have a question for u I have a 90 ranger that I just redid the whole truck I switched out the dana28 for a 35 I rebuilt everything now my issue is that my bushings keep moving I had the truck aligned twice in the last month cause they keep turning the bolts r tight the shop has no idea why they keep moving but they keep throwing my camber off they put marks on them the 2nd time they did the alignment but they moved again they seem to think I put too much anti seize on them I don't know has anybody else had a problem with the bushings moving the only thing I can do next is to get it aligned again and then have the shop weld the bushings in but I would rather not until I figure out why they r moving I don't now if the ball joints could have anything to do with it but they r new so any help is appreciated

I would mark them then clean off the antiseize, I have the fully adjustable bushings and even tried using loctite and they still turned on me... one time they were moving really bad and it turned out the pinch bolt threads had a bunch of rust at the end so weren't tightening...

Scotts90 thanks for the info but they are marked but when i rebuilt everything I really lubed them up with the antiseize this is why the shop is saying they keep moving so I will pull them out clean them up and get it aligned again but to be on the safe side I will probably have them tack weld them so they won't move again I never had this problem with the Dana 28 I liked the way they locked in but anyways thanks for the info
