Ya my instructions said IF cold heat up arms well i had the arms in the car all day and they were warm to touch and i pop the balls in them and it moved freely and everything was fine until a couple hours later.
Im pretty sure thats why they shattered ...if its a must the instructions should say this step is a must rather then if arms are cold...but nevertheless its my fault .
My point of starting this thread is what causes this?...why were they ok when they were installed and the balls easily popped in the hole and move very freely.
Does this piece continue to expand when its cold?....what properties arm in this material that cause this ? thats all im curious about.
