Hi, Mike.  I swear I posted something on this.  There are two possibles.
The early '83s and earlier use the none sleeved part.  The late '83s through
'85 use the 4kq, sleeved bushings.  What is not clear is whether the new
part can be retrofitted into the old control arms.  The dealer says no, but
they've been wrong before.  The bushings for the early coupes and VW dashers
supposedly fit the early TQCs.  I haven't confirmed this since I've been
very busy and don't need them right now.  I don't know the part numbers.
