The autoshop guys who installed my front strutrod bushings put the large outside washers on backwards. They are supposed to be installed with the curved side facing out and they are installed with the curve facing in. The bushings themselves are correctly installed. I've been hearing some creaking going on in front and am wondering if this is the cause. I've had all the front end components replaced a month ago.

Anyone have any issues from having the washers on backwards?

It probably isn't a good thing. I don't think I would be going back there and have them do any work on the car again.

Bring it back there and have them do it right. Im not sure if its really a bad thing but the Ford engineers did that for a reason.

Show them on the washer where it says "facing out".

I just did mine and WOW.
