The "8 teeth" designation is where to install the version with 8 teeth, 
versus the version without the 8 teeth.  Bushings look pretty similar; 
must be a slight difference in rubber compliance?  Repair manual states 
several times not to mix them up, and that the 8-teeth one goes to the 
rear.  I think you need to make sure you have the proper convex 

I've got a set of these sitting on the shelf, new; you _can_ install 
the bushings various ways and they'll fit fine (one of mine has 2 "8 
teeth" bushings in it and the other has the older style bushings which 
didn't differentiate between front and rear; and there's a pair of 
uninstalled bushings on the shelf, too... if I still had my type 44 I'd 
probably use them as is.

I've developed a clunk on the rear driver's side of my 200q20v avant 
has lately gotten worse.  I checked the usual suspects, rear tie rods,
etc. but came up with the bushing toward the front of the trapezoidal 
or lack thereof on my car, it's worn itself right away.

When looking the part up in the family album, MG 5, SG 05, Illustration
45-00, the bushing inside 18A is what I need.  However, two parts are
listed for fitting 4A0 511 329A.  These are 4A0 511 247B and 4A0 511 
The difference listed to the right for those is "8 teeth" for the second
one.  What does the "8 teeth" signify, and what is the difference 
these two parts?  The local dealer quoted me the same price for both, 
I'd really like to only order one.
