I have an 87 gn and just bought the polyurethane bushings for it. The question I have is have much thread should be showing on the long bolts. Also should poly be greased or prepped anyway before instalation.

My general rule of thumb is tighten the link down untill you see a little crush on the bushings. If the link is the same length as a stock one than its just a few threads over 1.25". You dont want any gaps between the bushings and the bar/lower arm, and its always best if you can do it with the wheels on the ground as compared to them sitting up in the air and the car on jackstands.If your into tuning the suspension you can experiment with different lengths of spacers to fine tune the amount of push in the front. The shorter you go on the spacer the tighter(higher the rate) it gets.
