In an effort to fix the clunk on the rear of my 200q20v avant, I removed
the trapezoidal arm on my 200q20v sedan parts car in storage.  The arm
came out easily on Monday night, and I had planned on swapping parts
yesterday.  But, the mounting of the bushing carrier for the front of the
trapezoidal arm, the one with the shot bushing on the avant, is different
between the two cars.  The parts sedan, MN001527, has two studs for
mounting the bushing carrier 4A0 511 329A (MG. 5, SG. 5, Illus 45, part
18A) as shown in the family album, and the avant, MN027161, has three
studs for mounting the carrier.  The only vin split I see in the family
album is for 44-L-125001, which I see as being in 1990.  Can someone check
a car later than my avant to see if they have two or three studs for that
mounting?  Do the s-cars use the same rear suspension setup, and if so, do
they use three studs?

I gather from the reply that Chris wrote that the 247B and 249 bushings
are not all that different, so I will just order one of the 247B and press
it into the carrier rather than swap in the one from the other car.
