I'm putting my front end back together after a rebuild.        I'm replacing the Idler Arm with a Moog part.
It came with a thick washer which the directions enclosed stated to use on the smaller end of the bushing
(bottom) where it attaches to the k-frame.

The arm I took off had no washers on it.        The problem I'm running in to is the bushing end of the arm is a pretty tight fit into the K-frame bracket.     There is no way this thick washer will fit between the bottom
end of the bushing and the bracket.

Is this a special hardened washer ?      Can I use a thinner washer from the hardware store ?     Or,   leave it off and not worry about it ?

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.





Thanks.

iagree Sometimes those are made to fit more than one application, so the washer may need to be used when installing that same part on other cars.

Thanks Chryco and Charger_Fan.     

I am curious if anyone else had the same issue with aftermarket Idler Arms.

Hope to get everything back together this weekend.
