Default Sway-bar link bushings on a 96' vs 95' and earlier

Anybody know if the Energy bushing kits would fit on my 96 (details in sig)? I'm not sure which suspension code I have, aside from knowing that I do have the air struts in back, but that wouldn't affect the front suspension anyways...?

Basically, what I need to know is whether or not these will fit my car :

and if not, does anybody know of any bushings that will?

Thanks all

Those should work on all 88-99 cars, and should work for 87 too, but that year was different in other ways so who knows.

Gotta love to hear that. I agree this it a great place, and I don't even own a Bonneville anymore! Willwren'* post link above is one of the all-time great and helpful threads.

Yep, Autozone has them for around $20 I believe. Very inexpensive considering the life you should get out of them, and a DIY job for almost anyone with the patience to get the old, rusty endlink bolts out.

I'm having a shop put in my new struts for me, so I figure that i'll have them put these in too, as long as they're at it. I love working on my own car, but something about doing suspension parts has always bothered me...

We had to get a grinder out for the rear ones on my car.

Those suckers were rusted tight.

One of the good reasons to live in the south. I hit mine with WD-40 and unbolted them.
