Default How much play in the front is acceptable ?

Have moderate slop on the upper A- arms.
Very little on the lowers, but some.
A lot of slop where the lower shock mounts.

Are they supposed to have this give /play or be bone tight ?
About 300 mi. on her , sled handles well, noticed this while on the lift for general inspection.

Thats pretty much how they are, lotsa play in a hurry. Just like the Proride sleds were.

Just lifted the front on mine and there is major slop. Is there instructions somewhere on the procedure to tighten up the a arm bushings? Help?

Buy new bushings from northstarrick and grease with special 101 grease.
