Hi,

I am just double checking something after looking at my wishbones at the hub carrier/upright end.
Currently, I have the large penny washers and smaller washers then the nut; but now doubting if this is correct and should be just the penny washer?
I have seen other builds with the penny and small washer, but read this was not correct.

Any help please?

Thanks

TOPCATNO6 (Graham).

The penny or shim washers are only used to "space" out the gaps between wishbone bushes and the chassis brackets.

They do not go under bolt heads or nuts with one exception, where a bolt head is up against a bush such as the rear lower wishbone to hub, where it is used not as a spacer but to spread the load. then standard washer and shim washer, otherwise never use two washers together, just a single standard.
