This information is in reference to kit PN: 8.3127 (Control Arm Bushing Set Rear)
I only needed to swap out a couple of my rear bushings, but bought the whole kit anyway. (Replacing some oldschool ubobtainium 6/6 bushings)

For anyone that needs this information, I suspect there will be a lot of people.

The kit is straightforward, each poly bushing is labeled with a specific #.
There is a diagram of the suspension arms and where each of these go, so that part is good.

The Problem
The kit comes in a box with all the parts jumbled in a big pile, none are placed with their corresponding counterpart.
Where do the inner steel sleeves go?
There are 3 different sizes (lengths), and the instructions do not indicate anything besides quantity of them and dimensions.
10ea 15.10.167.39 (.875" x .562" x 1.960")
2ea 15.10.20.39 (.875" x .562" x 1.800")
2ea 15.10.167.39 (.875" x .562" x 1.875")

Rather than trying to measure each and fumble around trying to figure this out:
- I called them directly and asked the engineers there to tell me where each goes.


The Key

Sleeve # | Sleeve Length | Bushing # | Location
15.10.188.39 | 1.875" | 8374 | Spherical Bushing @ Knuckle
15.10.20.39 | 1.800" | 2756 | Trailing Arm @ Knuckle
15.10.167.39 | 1.960" | All Remaining Bushings | All Other Locations

The Diagram with my notes:

Hopefully this helps someone out there!

(NOTE - I do not advise using this kit's poly busing #8374 in place of the OEM spherical bushing, just use the OEM part)

I believe that spherical bushing is 42210-14010
Yep that's them.
I've replaced them last year.

My 20 ton press barely removed them, they were seized in the knuckle like no other.
I ended up covering the part with some heavy fabric and ducking for cover to avoid being impaled by flying parts once it let go.

Im trying to picture this scene in my head. Was this playing when this took place? :p
