One concern.
To adjust the diameter, a flanged collar seems preferable.
This way, the tightening force of the nut will be applied to the collar and the collar will not wobble in the hole.

I hope it goes well.
Here's the Whitelines so you all can see if you wanted.

Godbless!

Yeah you’re right, i’m gonna try these
You must be registered for see images attach

Iron may be better because the tightening torque is higher.
I tightened it with 120N・m.

I might try these if my idea doesn't work however those bushing here are adding more thickness on the outside of the bolting points via sway bar and LCA. So idk if the Tien brand ones will work with these due to the super short stud, maybe these whiteline ones I picked up they have a pretty long. Stud
Since Tein is M12, a collar was not necessary.

Also, since a washer with a thickness of about 2 mm is placed on the ball joint side, it is possible to replace the washer with the collar.

I am not a Tein salesman.

So the whitelines work! That said. Could you link the inserts that fit a 10mm stud? The 14mm outer diameter inserts I got were a mm too thick.

I don't feel the need to align the centers.
Below is a steel.

In your photo the screws look short.
T-series tightening torque cannot be tolerated unless there are at least 5 threads.

They are the same length as your studs. And I torqued them down. Little more than 5 threads.

Not the mountains.
Installed the Tein links on mine two days ago. Good so far. I torqued everything after driving around the block. Eliminated some of the noise I'm having on the front end. Still have another clunk on bumps and a creaking noise when turning while barely moving or backing up. I'll get that sorted soon.
