Perhaps for your requirements, a fresh set of stock bushings would suffice.

An '82 coupe has the earlier (non-linkrod) style of front sway bar,
which means that the 4000 quattro car will not be a drop-in fit.
You should use the early UrQ bar instead (for those urQs witout
the linkrods at the end of the bars too). I don't know of a source
other than the dealer, unfortunately. And let's hope it's not NLA.
