'83 320i Lower Suspension Arm
I have just finished replacing the lower suspension arm since the bushing were gone. I cannot get the arm to align with the hole on the crossmember to complete the reattachment. Any ideas??

If this is the last bolt to go in and the only part left then undo everything and START with is bolt. Leave everything slack until reassembled and final tighten with weight back on the wheel. (Must admit its not a job I have done).

Thanks for the help. I managed to insert the bolt after leveraging the assembly just enough to slide the bolt in (with a few taps.) The other side was easier.
