All bolts on running gear components with bonded rubber
bushes may be tightened only when the component is in the
unladen position (normal position).
Bonded rubber bushes can be twisted only to a limited extent.
Axle components with bonded rubber bushes must therefore
be brought to a position equivalent to the unladen (normal) po‐
sition before being tightened.
Otherwise, the bonded rubber bush would be subject to torsion
loading, shortening its service life.
