Make sure those bolts don't have threads where the bushings sit. It'll eat them up. If in doubt, use GM bolts ONLY.

I did my fronts a while ago, and they took care of quite a bit of slop... unfortunately, they've worked themselves loose... twice. Both times I've tighted them back up to spec, but I'm in need of a more long-term solution...

Waiting on the rear until I do struts. If the local yards are up for it, I'm hoping to go full f41 in one step... we'll see...

My car looks like it has the orinigals but they are tight and I have never had to tighten them up. My car rides really good for have 161k on would they be any reason for me to change it

Add a jam nut to the top, tightened against the top nut. Or a nylock. That'* what I have. Nylocks cap all 4 corners, jammed against the top-most nut.
