Well it has been many moons since I originally took about my rear end and have lost the original bolts. I cleaned up my radius links and put in new Polly bushings. When putting them back in the car I find that there must be some spacers and special bolts that are required. Can someone tell me what I need please and where to get them? I am thinking in the front maybe a special bolt is required that is sleeved on the inside do to the oversized hole on the mounting bracket? On the axle side it looks like just a spacer is needed. I looked on moss but I can’t find anything there. Thanks in advance.

There is a spacer about 1/8” thick that goes IIRC on front inside. Comes in the box with new radius arms. Check AH Spares Catalog.

#16 has a round head with a flat on it to fix it to the bracket.

I fill the radius arm with anti corrosion wax. Mine rust out from the inside!
