Ah yes, the uppers...

Don't forget the angle on them when attaching the inner bushings.

It's 47mm.

I measured from the tip of the bracket to the middle of the control arm.
One of the uppers is curved so, use the flat one to set the distance and then line the other one up to the flat one.

The Bentley manual doesn't tell you how to correctly set it to 47mm, I just did it this way on mine to get as close to 47mm as possible.

This setting will ensure that the inner bushings are at rest when the vehicle is parked or cruising. You don't want the bushings to have tension on them unless the suspension is traveling.

This rule also goes for the lower control arms too.
