Wishbone to Hub bolt-tightness

When I was tightening this bolt to connect the wishbone ball joint to the hub it didnt seem to tighten up fully. It seemed the bolt could still tighten more but felt either the bolt or hub clamp was stretching. I stopped incase I damaged any parts. I checked the balljoint and it seems solid in place. Is this supposed to do this or should it be tightened till it until the bolt does not turn anymore? Any ideas whats causing this? Cheers

Re: Wishbone to Hub bolt-tightness

How are the threads on the bolt? The nut should tighten fully...
