Swaybar bushings.

Same problem here.

In the mean time, I ordered some early Coupe GT bushings (I have the
uninstalled parts at home). From what I saw, I will have to enlarge the
hole to slip them over the urQuattro bigger front sway bar but the outside
shape is the same.
One concern is the hardness of the rubber: urQ bushings are green (like the
end bushings), where the Coupe are plain black. Maybe softer?

Shoot me an email at home at laraa at sympatico.ca if you want the part
I bought mine this winter so they were still available and cheap.

What is to be done about replacing swabar bushings - where does one source
these.  I tried to order a set for my '83 Ur Quattro (early VIN) from the
dealer and they are obsolete even the later style.  So I ordered the ones
for the 4000 Quattro in hopes they could be coerced to fit.  I got a call
later that they are obsolete too - How many 4000 quattros are out there?

Anyway, so what do I use for swaybar bushings.
