Rear axle bushing information

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

You can buy these on Amazon... lol I will have a set for tomorrow.

It will be interesting to see if these are a direct swap. If so I'll probably seek out a second set.

I was thinking this years ago when I saw the watt-link setup on solid axle Opel here, seemed very plausible to adapt that. Someone needs to prototype it :)

I'll have these bushings tonight to compare to the ones that Tyler machined down from a set of Poly ones.

They are slightly different than the ones that Tyler made up for my 96... Narrower actually. I will measure the center sleeve when I get a chance but it was not as wide as the ones made up for the modified poly ones.

If the Whiteline bushing is narrower, will it still work? From the looks of the original, it used part of the bushing as a rubber "snubber" to limit lateral axle shift... will these do the same?
