So in a nutshell, I have NFC.
sounds like you need to order it, measure it, and if it will not work send it back saying you got the wrong part.

at 60 bucks, it'd be nice to know before the purchase. a little ticked with them, I am - no one has responded to phone calls so I can verify dimensions. Veryyyy annoying.

It APPEARS that we share these bushings with some RWD applications. I'm still trying to verify some numbers.

I've emailed ES as well as about 5 other dealers, asking them to verify basic dimensions, and am waiting for some replies. I contacted ES themselves last week, and haven't heard a peep - not even a 'thanks for sending us your questions / comments / concerns' auto email.

Very dissapointing.

<edit>

according to GMPD, the PN of our bushing is the number for some RWD applications:

Energy Suspension is faxing me a specifications sheet as we speak... so I should be able to verify pretty soon if that set will work out -

matt

<edit> it'* been a bit of time, and it hasn't showed up yet... getting more and more annoyed with customer service there. anyhew, if anyone feels like calling, and sounding intelligent about it, here'* the number for ES - direct. Just tell the receptionist you want to ask a question about a specific part number, and she'll immediately x-fer you to the people who can check.

(949) 361-3935

Matt, I too am awaiting information from ES on dimensions, based on that same cross-reference from GM.

lol

give them a phone call... they're nice to talk to on the phone. don't mention I called, cause I told them I was building a custom go-cart so that they wouldn't just look up the same thing in the book again.

I'm bumping this. I spent over an hour on the phone today with two different parts stores having them look into it.

Both listed a RWD Buick LeSabre in 1991.

I'm having no luck here on this one. It'* entirely possible that there'* nothing out there, but I'm going to make damn sure before I go OEM on these. I need better bushings to control my torque-steer on the Zilla. It'* vicious now, even as high as 30mph.

you could just bite the 50 dollar bullet, buy the ones listed for the lesabre, and if they don't fit, say that it said it was compatible with your car, and haggle for a return... seems like it would take a lot less effort than everything you've gone through... just my opinion though...
