Question Spacer behind Front Lower Control Arm looks like it has a gap. Normal?

When im under the runner, i usually look all around for anything out of place. I noticed this a while ago but really didnt think it was a big deal, or is it?

The washer attached to the front passenger side, back of the lower control arm seems like it has a gap in it. Is it a problem? Water will enter and rust the lower control arm from the inside out? Should get it fixed? or, not a problem?



The driver side washer on the LCA seems to be sealed a little better.

It's normal. That is how the factory bushings are.

If you have never had those adjust bolts/sleeves out and you are still able to get them out, good idea to take them out, grease them up good and reinstall or you'll be cutting them off someday when they can't be adjusted for alignment because they are rusted in place.
At least true on 4th gen.

Good idea. I do usually spray the bolts and inside that gap with silicone based spay this way it don't rust out.

This spring I may get the whole under carriage rust proofed with either powder coating or use the Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer which instantly converts rust to a protected paintable surface first then use the Rust-Oleum Undercoating Pro Grade Rubberized Black spray.

I should of done this as soon as I bought the runner, but rust isn't too bad so far.
