hello.

i have a problem with my assembly regarding the knuckle and arm holding the frame to the knuckle .

at certain point i can only move the assembly only by selecting the knuckle  body, everything moves fine if i select that, but if i select the arm (either upper or lower) i cannot even move anything.This affect my steering assembly too.

movement 2.JPGselecting the knuckle allows all part to move

-frame grey colour(rigid)
