I have a 1997 Buick Riviera the front lower control arm bushings need replacing. The problem is I can not find replacement bushing seeing GM does not list them . Has anyone found a cross reference for these vertical bushings ?
Thanks Al

anyone know where I could have found the proper bushings ?

I hate it when 80% of all the pictures from FAQs and write-ups are gone... :-E
Makes FAQs and write-ups 80% useless.
