front upper shcokie arms

I have a eb2 ghia with xr8 shockies fitted and I`ve been getting a clunky sound front the front left (no shock there) and it turns out that 1 of the bolts and nuts that hold the upper arm to the brakets is pretty much on its way out its lose and that so just wanted to know what is the best/easyest way to replace it and any problems that could happen if I just buy a new one and swap it over cheers

Re: front upper shcokie arms

are you referring to the bush which the bolt passes through on the upper control arm brackets?
if so im pretty sure you can simply buy replacement brackets with bush pre-installed

Re: front upper shcokie arms

it seems a little strange that the bolt itself would be buggered without the bush causing it in the first place, have u inspected the bushes at all? The bolt passes through the bush and crush tube, if the bush is gone the bolt will be loose. I suggest you undo both bolts pull the upper arm from the brackets and have a look. if it is JUST the bolts, you should be able to buy replacements, you wont need a wheel alignment as you are only temporarily shifting the camber angle, once you bolt it back up it will be as it was before
