Yes, they need a spool-shaped bushing. Clarks and other Corvair vendors sell them.

Install new bushings. Close the clamps with large Channel-lock pliers. Then install the bolt's. Front wheels off the ground to reduce some of the tension on sway bar.

mine doesn't have a clamp like that on the end. it has a metal tab that goes into a slot on one end and is bolted down on the other, this is hard to install.

Pretty sure they are the same. That top piece of what you call the clamp is a curved "tab" and the end toward the front of the car goes into a slot.

Yeah, pretty bad, huh? Ya' think maybe that's where the "klunk" was coming from when I made hard right turns? All rebuilt now and looking better. And the klunk is gone!

Don't worry, there are plenty of "big buck" cars out there with their natural patina.
Remember - they are only original once!!
Here ya go, I got some patina for ya...

No. But, you probably need to supply pictures for anyone to figure it out. Or, look at the pic above.

Not familiar with EM suspension. Brackets in correct position?
