Subject: [T3] Front suspension questions

The front torsions arrived from ISP Friday completing the parts needed
for the front suspension.

I set the lower trailing link droop as specified in the brown Bentley.
I don't have the clever protractor shown in the manual. But I do have
an angle-finder graduated in degrees and a pool shooters eye so it
should be very close to 39 degrees. And it looks just like figure

First question: In order to get both ball joints connected on each
side I needed to compress the lower links with a jack after tying down
the pan. I think this is normal since there's no weight to speak of.
The body is still 18 miles from here. Comments?

Second question: Are there supposed to be big wavy washers under the
nuts securing the ball-joints? Seems like there ought to be.
