Maybe I should ask the list if the new style bushings will fit the earlier
cars.  The dealer says "No," but you know how reliable they are.

I don't know with what VIN they went to the newer style bushings, but you
can tell what type you have by looking at the control arm in your car.  The
old style has rubber sticking out of both sides on the control arm.  The
newer ones don't as they are in a metal sleeve.

If these new bushings definitely won't work in my '82 TQC but will in yours,
I'll be happy to sell them to you.
