Dog bone insert question.

I just installed the APR steel dogbone insert when I put my new clutch in. I was getting clunking/squeaking when going over bumps. Took it out and the noise went away.

Just curious if anyone else has run into this issue?

I need to recheck the torque. My brother in law's wrench was having some issues so not sure how accurate it was being.

Will the bolt thread and tighten if not through the arm? I feel like its through but its entirely possible it's not. Will double check that as well.

It sure will. Ask the last 2 guys who ruined their radiator how they found that out.

Make sure the car is flat as well. I had NVH the first time I installed the 034 one as a jacked up one corner. I re sis it using ramps and absolutely no noise now at all.
