    Sway Bar to Frame bushing

    Looking through the archives for the correct sway-bar to frame bushing I came across this thread:
    http://www.vcvc.org/showthread.php/4...ar+arm+bushing

    Can anyone verify that the Napa Number is correct?

    Thanks

    Thank you, I love my gold sway bars. This picture was just prior to attaching the sway bar with the 1st gen links.
    1st gen sway bar with 2nd gen cross member etc. was a problem... had to trim away a corner on the cross member to allow the sway bar to rest flat

    Here is my 1st gen sway bar and links before powder coating made them beautiful. I had the sleeves powder coated too.
