Well I finally decided to install the new torque arms (third arm up from the bottom) that I bought over a month ago. What a disaster. Has anyone actually installed the sleeves that you get for the new arms? I've checked threads here and it looks like others have had problems too.

The old arms have 19mm hex head bolts, but the new ones are designed for 18mm torx bolts. The sleeves are supposed to make up the difference between the two sizes at the connection point on the wheel end.

Well, its almost impossible to get the sleeve in and once you do, the hole is smaller than the bolt! I've only attempted one side, and my car is apart at the moment. I'm gonna sleep on it, but I'm going to have to put the old arm back on if I can't figure this out.

Does anyone have an answer?
