Sorry, I thru the box out with the part number. My local NAPA dealer measured them and found upper and lower bushings that fit. If the can't find a number see if they will call the Colonia, NJ store and ask for Chris or Wayne. Those are the guys that helped me with that and other parts that had to be matched up. I just can't say enough good things about those guys. I would not trust eBay for those parts. I ordered lowers that were supposed to be for my Plymouth and after removing the bushings and checking, I found out they were for an Eldorado. Some of those 57-58 suspension parts were used up to the early 60's.

I second NAPA. Got all my stuff through them. Just need to connect with someone experienced. You can also try online at the napa site for part numbers...

AC Delco part number for upper control arm bushings is ACDelco 88912510

Klispie machine shop in Hamburg will remove the old ones and press in the new.

Hope this helps. Smile
