So I replaced every component of the front suspension recently with stock parts. My lower ball joints stick up pretty high through the spindle and the castle nuts aren't quite tall enough to reach the hole for the cotter pin. What would cause that? I compared the old stock parts to the replacement parts and couldn't see any differences. The new LCAs came with these little plastic covers over them. Should I have installed them with the covers in place? I thought they were just thread protectors for shipment. Where am I screwing this up? I'm just about to the point of sticking some washers under the tallest castle nut I can find, just to get a cotter pin installed. Spindles checked out fine.
