Hello I removed my lower control arms and on one side I had to cut the bolt as it was rusted in the sleeve. The bushings are Prothane and I was told they do not sell the inner sleeves. I am going to put the LCA's back on as the 87 LCA's work better than the 84's I just installed. 87 has Prothane and 84 has poly. Car is 87. I can do a picture if need be.

Prothane is in California a few hours from me and I just called them for you. Unfortunately, sales was unavailable, tech was not in, and the operator was worthless. I can try again tomorrow earlier in the day if you want.

Just to make sure, you need the metal sleeve for the 1987 bushings right?

,

Prothane is the name of the company, making polyurathane bushings,
so it sounds like you already have poly everywhere.

But they sell the sets cheap on eBay, thats where I got mine for both my 86 and 88

I need the sleeve or bushing that the bolt goes thru for the LCA. Yes it is an 87 LCA but 85-87 are same.

Well, they sell just the sleeves....but only a minimum order if 50.
The tech recommended just buying some DOM tubing and cutting your own.
He says that is all their kits use and they simply cut their own.
