Im about to register the Brat again, and want to have the front end in top condition. I've done everything except Sway-bar bushings, and control arm bushings. The control arm bushings were easy to find, but the sway bar bushings... not so much. On RockAuto they're not listed for an 84 Brat, so I did 84 GL and: RAYBESTOS Part # 5501026  IIRC there are 4 bushings and two different sizes, correct?

Thanks for the help in advance guys.

This is the one you are looking at. Note this: you can see above the bushing that the mounting surface has a notch. This is sometimes flat, depending I think on the year of the car. there are bushings that have the notch part on them. Since i can't find them, I have the flat ones in use, no problems.

 

 

This is what the front bushings look like :

Cheaper to make them here in UK (UK prices are just silly expensive - not that they're at all easy to get). See http://www.ultimates...ush-or-bushing/

I have reviewed your thread a few times, and have contemplated doing as you have. The dilemma is that they aren't in good enough condition to cast a mold with.

Yes, when they are a compound shape, it helps to have an original capable of being used as a plug. But for simple shapes (like cylinders or even 'top hats') you can pour into cardboard shapes or make a clay plug.

heres better pics of what you are looking for- the ones on the top in the pic of 4. I have never been able to find new ones of these.  I know this seems a bit obyious, but did you call a dealership? I have been surprised more than once by these little old parts they still can get. Other than that, I grab them at the junkyards from time to time so I always have a spare set. ggod luck

Ok, thanks again. I guess I should call the dealership. I usually don't, but I'll give it a shot. We don't see Subarus in yards that often down here.

If the dealer doesn't have I could probably grab you a set next time I go to the jy, maybe this upcoming weekend . if you are in no hurry. also try posting in the want ads here. I d sell you my spare set, but dunno if I can replace them with good ones.
