Here's my *me too*.  When installing the new control arms in the rear I had 
to use a VISE to get the damn things back in.  The fronts went in hard too.. 
but much easier than the rears.  I attributed it to beating up on them when 
removing the old bushings.  Maybe the dimensions of the delrin bushing are 
slightly different causing the difficulty of installation?


87 4ktq (w/delrin bushings )
88 90q (w/separated rubber bushings...)
