Default wanted vega parts, hard to find

looks like a good place to pick some brains...I`m looking for front lower control arm bushing washers,for a 71 vega,they slip into the end of the bushings, before you stall them into the frame,,mine are worn right out, and GM dont have any left,,a wrecker would probably have something in their yards,,but not a real good time to be routeing through cars, and I have it all apart now,,could use a set of 8,,or at least 6 , to get it all back together..any leads would be helpfull...

Is this possibly what you are looking for, it's a whole rebuild kit.

Zip.

Yes,,that is the kit,,but it does not come with the washers, you apparently need to use your old washers, and mine are worn right out.

you may need to have a machine shop make you some out of flat stock.

these fit on the end of the bushings before you slide the assembled lower control arm into place in the frame mounts.

and yes its looking like I may have to get some made, cause no luck finding any yet.

A friend just got a Vega parts car. I'll locate him and see if he would give up his.
