Currie Greasable bolts question


Recommended Posts

ok, went to install my currie control arms last night, and the new bolt/nuts from currie will not screw onto each other, they will screw on about 1/2 way down the nut and just stop, and all of them are doing that, is this normal, and what do I need to do to get these to work?

They may be stop nuts. They have a crimped thread to ensure they will not loosen by themselves. They should go on, but it will require some force from a wrench or ratchet.

Currie hardware uses Stover Lock Nuts for the control arm bolts. They are like that, just tighten them down.

 

Stover Lock Nuts - A one-piece hex nut which derives its prevailing torque characteristics from controlled distortion of its top threads from their normal helical form to a more elliptical shape.

 

Frequently used in the automotive and metalworking industries. Can withstand severe vibration and shock loads. Reusable and can withstand temperatures of up to 450°F.
