WTB LM urethane control arm bushings (F & R)
Posted by: KenHenry ()

Does anyone have urethane control arm bushings for the late model, that they would be willing to sell? I'm interested in upper and lower bushings for the front control arms and the bushings at the front of the torque/trailing arms at the rear. I can be reached by PM.

I would also be interested in any information on converting the original bushings to urethane if anyone has tried that, e.g., by pushing or burning out the rubber and pushing in urethane insert of the correct size. Thanks! Ken

Thanks Phil, will do! Thanks for the spare rear wheel bearing setup. I pulled it apart and the bearings seem to be in pretty good shape! I'll just re-pack them and install with new seals to replace the crunchy bearing I found at the left rear... Best, Ken

Always good to hear I helped you in some small way. My garage is almost done- dealing with 8" of snow and roofers coming tomorrow... Can't wait to bring my car home.. Stay well.

I used these in my 66. They fit and work great. They also look original.
