I am putting the front end back together on my car, and of course I don't remember how everything goes back together.
I cannot figure out how many washers, and where they are located on the upper control arm shafts.
Are there washers on the inside of the bushings?

Of all the '88 front ends I've rebuilt I've seen one washer on the inside. Which side I don't remember, I'd have to look at the spare ones I have to verify.

Thanks I appreciate the help!
There was a washer stuck on each shaft, but I can't remember if it was just one that stuck or just one on there to begin with.

I am in the middle of replacing my entire front suspension myself and there are two washers on each outer side of the bushing. One large one that covers the bushing's rubber and a smaller one between it and the nut. Good luck. It has been a PITA for me, but will be well worth it!
