    Good luck. Stuff is hard to find. I had some NOS pivot bushings but I split the rubber trying to install them. The end bushings pop up for sale once in a while as do the pivot kits. But it may take a while to find them and they usually aren`t for sale cheap.

    wow how did you split the pivot bushing ? ive had 2 sets of poly now the first was cut wrong and id too big and this current set the id is too big . i already have one end link need one more but id rather cut my losses and source a set of nos bars with all new pivot and end links . Thanks for the number i think i have them somewhere but after time you kinda forget these things or lose the mlol . yeah would also be killer if moog would re do them .

    I just got Moog last year. A member bought out some stock he found. And since there was a little more he asked me if I wanted while he was ordering then forwarded mine.

    Availability is always spotty on stuff. I would bet if there was a constant search for a PN in multiple computer networks and locations, ...there would be a fresh run. Just like there were NEW heater cores briefly last week. And they sold out in less than half an hour! Yeah, I bet those get another run...

    I had the same issue with Polybushings pivot links, and that's been years ago. I think he must be incorrectly compensating for cure shrinkage in his mold. I've thought about smashing them into the the clams anyhow and seeing what happens.

    When I looked for t-bars back around 2004-2005 or so, only the left side was still available from the dealer. Not cheap ($425, ouch) but at least I had one bar. The other I rebuilt. The dealer found an NOS pivot bushing kit at some obscure old dealership so I got that as well. They were NS1 by then. Unfortunately, even though it was new, it was old and the bushing lasted about 2 years before it got loose and started clunking for whatever reason. Replaced it with a poly bushing from Firm Feel, along with the wider upper plate and it fit tight around the bar. Years later and it's still like new yet. The end mount (IIRC) was from Napa, MOOG I think.
