    OK, this may be a dumb question, but I'm not exactly sure how the cams work. The inside of my bushing sleeves are coated with surface rust. The actual cam sleeves that fit over the bolts are NOT. Just wondering if its OK to put anti-seize just inside the bushing sleeves, NOT the bolts or nuts, or the mating surfaces of the cam plates.

    Yep, you want it betweent the CAM sleeve and the bushing sleeve; that's where it tends to rust together and tear the bushing when they lock together. The bolt is locked to the CAM sleeve via the hex pattern on the end of the CAM nut & sleeve and should cause the CAM sleeve to move freely within the bushing sleeve. Hopefully, I got the nomenclature correct.

    Good to see you got it off. I already paid $143 for new hardware expecting to keep the CAM sleeve and returning the bolt and CAM nut. Hopefully, I'll get lucky and only have to pay for the aftermarket control arms.
