    Anybody ever notice the "upgraded" style Idler Arm as opposed to the old one?

    Notice the lack of the nut ? Reading online there are some comments about whether these are truly and upgrade since

    the intent of the original was just rotating back and forth while these newer style allow motion in undesired directions

    because of the lack of second nut to dissuade this?

    Well since nobody has any thoughts all I can do is test it out and post my opinion as it is already installed.
