    Golden Horizons Rocker Arms

    Hey i got some aluminum rocker arms for my merv recently, i put them on with all the stock screws and there seems to be about 1-2mm of play in either direction....the shoulder bolt that attaches the rocker arms to the diff housings are slightly too long and cannot be screwed in snug and the diameter of them seems to be too small for the hole on the rockers...not sure if i should try to shim it or try to find new screws to use....anyone else have this problem?

    you can reuse the stock bushings or upgrade to bearings..... thetoyz.com has an upgrade kit for $10 for all 8 bearings you need

    Oh i see them now.....they were pretty dirty before and didnt see them...its a friends car im just fixing it for him, so i dont know all that much about it. thanks though....as for the quality of their products...I also just installed driveshafts and steering knuckles from GH and the aluminum seems to be very good quality, one of the driveshafts i got has a slight amount of play wear it sits on the bearings
