Unhappy

I purchased new ball joints for my `94 Caprice (4.3 Liter) and the uppers didn't come with any assembly instructions (Perfect Circle by Dana Corp.).

Does anyone know in what order the parts are assembled (like what parts go on top of the control arm, and what goes on the bottom and in what order)?
Also, what should the 4 bolts & nuts that replace the big rivets be torqued to?

TIA!!

I love this place!

Thanks Craig, that was just what I was looking for. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Are those pics from the FSM?
I've been planning on getting one, and those pics look very detailed, which is what I like.

Thanks again!!
