    This post in the suspension FAQ has the part numbers. http://www.grandmarq.net/vb/showthre...l=1#post215706

    The spacers are not absolutely needed, but they will keep things aligned properly and prevent premature wear. http://www.grandmarq.net/vb/showthre...ushing-spacers

    I don't know if there are any more packs of spacers available, but the specs can be used to make more: 1.495OD, 1.252ID, 11 gauge (0.116") thick round spacer.

    To my understanding I will need 8 sets of these https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B000CN...ZBSUR0T0&psc=1

    I purchased kit 9.4102R. I dont remember the price being so high..this was also over 9 years ago.

    I see the ones you are interested in are cheaper on summit: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/e...102g?rrec=true

    the link I posted is in Canadian currency. As for the bushings where did you get your spacers from, and how have the bushings held up after 9 years?

    I understand.

    I purchased the spacers through a member here. Jeffbudah I believe most recently (so I have another set for future project) Before that from montey...he had a couple extra sets from scott which were machined up ages ago.

    I have to check out the receipt book........well no luck there. I think it was around 300 for all 16.

    They are fine to this day.
