It only says to '96 because their online catalog only goes up to '96.

<edit>

on that note, I sent them an email asking for parts assistance, and I provided them with approximate (by approximate, I mean +/- .25 mm or so) dimensions of what we need.

so... are we assuming that they're wrong then, and the control arm bushing for a '96 lesabre isn't really a control arm bushing for a '96 lesabre?

The 96 LeSabre uses the same control arm bushings as a 93 Bonneville. So we're good on that, assuming their listing is correct. It'* kinda spooky that they have the LeSabre also listed as a chevy part number, but I'm not aware of any chevrolet'* that use our bushings.

I thought about your question, I was wondering if it was possible to remove your bushing and find bushings from a truck or so that has the same shape and width, etc but if the hole is bigger, why don't you just buy a high quality sleeve (and grease it good) and pop it in and hopefully maybe it'* possible

Try www.sanerperffab.com. It'* where I got the sway bars and bushings for my 2000 but I had to ask about application. They weren't custom but neither were they specifically listed on the web site.

Waiting for information on them to confirm the compatibility.

Mkaake may be in for the $20.

EnergySuspensionParts.com has that listed for the 91-96 LeSabre, which we know was a FWD H body. However, EnergySuspension.com says that 3.3173 is the correct set forn the FULL SIZE Centurion, Electra (RWD), Le Sabre (RWD), Wildcat, adn Estate Wagon. But they didn't MAKE any of those cars in 91-96.

So in a nutshell, I have NFC.
