where do the washers go on the upper wishbones? (pics)

Hi guys,

Have been thinking about my premature upper wishbone bush failure and started to wonder about the washer placement. If you look at this picture where would you say the washers go?


is it

1. bolt / topmount / washer / wishbone / washer / topmount / bolt
2. bolt / washer / topmount / wishbone / topmount / washer / bolt

1 seems like the obvious choice to me but just wanna make sure i'm not being stupid

Well, it is in fact...

3. bolt / washer/ wishbone / mount / wishbone / washer / nut

... but you already knew that.

Good luck
