Random Pull/Torque Steer after new moog lower control arms.

Sweet, still looks like Tapatalk hasn’t figured out this issue with replies.

What I stated was something along the lines of that my vibration issue was due to the knuckle bushing on the rear where the control arm connects to. Completely worn out and I replaced it with a Moog bushing since I don’t really have faith in Dorman. I would love to swap the knuckle bushing with a poly along with the front control arms for more rigidity and for long term durability.

I replace almost all my bushings in my Ex with new parts since they aren’t that expensive but having 120K miles on the vehicle just gives me a piece of mind while hitting some turns pretty hard.

I also replaced my LCA with Moog.  The Moog arms do not use a castle nut, and I have had an issue with the ball joint loosening.  You can't get a socket on the nut; you need to use a crowfoot wrench, and it can be difficult to get the necessary torque on the ball joint nut.

On the moogs. I tightened them down as tight as they would go. You shouldn't need a crowsfoot. I did it with a 11mm on the stud and a long wrench. However my issue was not caused by loose ball joints. The moog lcas came with subpar forward bushings from factory without metal spacers and no matter how tight you go with the bolt the bushing barely contacts the frame and allows too much lateral movement.
