Default Energy Suspension Polyurethane Bushings

I'm really interested in doing this upgrade, but I can't seem to locate the part on Autozone'* website (nearest store is at least an hour from here). As I understand it the part number for the front kit is #9.8120RC and the part number for the rear is # 9.8105RC . I'll also need 2 bolts from GM #10026678 and nylock washers.
Did the part numbers change or do they still make them? Any other stores sell them? All I have in town is Napa.
Here'* the thread I referenced by the way.

Those are the right numbers. I got mine from AZ a few weeks ago. The bolts are still 10026678. They used to be a couple bucks each, but at GMPD they are around $9 now. I got the rear bolts at AZ, same part number, but they came as a 'sway bar repair kit' made by Duralast, part number SL224 at AutoZone. Don't use their bushings of course. Or you could get grade 8 bolts from your local harware store.

Bill, I got 3/8" nylock nuts and test fit them fine...but is 8mm better? That old post says 8mm, but the kits themselves have 3/8" bolts.

EDIT:

I couldn't seem to find the front kit on the website, but you have the right number.

Default sway bar link bushings

This is my first post so go gentile on me.

I also looked for the Energy Suspension bushings. I live in LAs Vegas and the Kragen site had them listed last week, when I went into the store no luck. However, I did find at Pepboys and Kragen (Shucks/Checker) that they have the McQuay Norris urathane kits, front #SL100HD and rear #SL224 and the rears come with new bolts.

Hope this helps everyone out.

The front kits are 3/8".

The rear OEM bolts are 8mm.

On the part numbers. That last two characters RC stand for a color coding by the manufacturer.

As long as the numbering 9.8105 and 9.8120 are there...you are all set. My local AZ only carries the red ones, Pepboys has the black ones.

I guess I'll have to call them up or something because I can't even get the website link to the rear set to come up in search results on their site - WTF. Hopefully talking to someone will yeild better results.

IIRC, Harofreak told me the Autozones in Minnesota stopped carrying the Energy Suspension brand. Perhaps this is true of the entire Autozone chain?
