Rear Stabilizer Support Bushing question

Hey
just purchased and installed new bushings as the old ones all damaged and dried.
the question I have is how tight are the should they be when I re install?
for now I just snugged it all down
thanks for any info

I don't know about your terrain or riding style Tazz, but have you ever tried it with the stabilizer removed or disconnected? You have a little less high speed stability but it makes for a much smoother ride and better wheel-to-ground contact in rough or off-camber terrain. After a couple rides to get used to the different feel of the machine you'll never want it hooked back up again unless you're into a lot of fast riding and power slides through corners all the time.
