Default Watts link/Bellcrank - how much play?

Hi All,
Well, I have a slight clunk on my 2010 PT and checked all the usual items, exhaust, bushings, spare, etc and not really able to find anything out of place or obviously bad. However, when I shake/pull on the watts link there seems to be ever so slight movement. I have read several of the very informative previous posts and most of the time it seems to be very clear the bad watts link or arms. So, is there a spec or rule of thumb on replacement of the watts link?Thanks so much! BDG

and... after searching for parts it appears that the bellcrank bolt is different for a 2010 PT. Mopar lists 01-06 as P/N 6508928AA and 07-10 Mopar list P/N as 6506501AA.... are they really (and truly) different???? Yikes! BDG

Watts link components should be firm with very,very very, little to no movement static.

Yes they are different. One of the bolts, I cant remember which is thicker or thinner than the other and therefore will either not pass through the other's hole, or be much too loose. So choose the correct wats link and bolt for your application.

The easiest way to check the watts link for play is to grab a hold of the top of the rear tire, while the car is sitting on the ground normally, and shake. Use some force. Either there will be no play or you will feel it, and hear it, begin to knock, indicating it is, or has begun, to wear out.
