I've got a set of offset eccentric bushings for my front lower control arm from bmp, and I have them all installed on the control arm and in the eyelit, but having a major problem trying to reattach the control arm/eyelit to the frame now. Being it was offset it is now not allowing the holes in the eyelit to match up with the pins in the frame of the car. Any idea from those of you that know what I am talking about? how do I fix this dilema?

You're just going to have to muscle it in there. Or you could trying loosening the outer and inner balljoints but it would probably be easier to just try and force it over.
