Anyone know where to find something like the stock upper control arm bushing (rear trailing arm) with an offset bolt hole? I looked at the Moog K8627 for a Taurus. The diameter is too small. Oh Really auto parts showed me the bushing they have for the Z-28/SS Camaro (I didn't get the part #), they looked the same as the stock metric bushing.

Any leads are appreciated.

Did the bushing for the Z-28 have cutouts above and below the center sleeve or was it solid rubber?

The ones that they located were solid rubber. If I couldn't find any that I could play around with on adjustments then I wanted to try the cutout version. You wouldn't happen to have a part # or supplier for the cut-out bushing would you? I currently run poly lowers and rubber uppers on mandatory stock length arms.

Thanks!

I dont know where to get the cutout bushings. I saw a pic of them on here a while back but cant find it now. I tried calling the chevy dealership but they need the suspension option code. I guess that there is a few different ones acording to GM.
