Hi could someone give me the moog part numbers for upper and lower front contol arm bushings for an 88 gt. I want to make sure I get the right ones. Advance seems to have them but for the upper they come with the shaft I don't need the shaft. Where is the best place to get them I want to install these this weekend so will get them from advance if I can but also looking at rock auto thank you.

Thanks Lou, has anyone verified the bushings suggested on the ogre's cave for an 88 that's some old information was just wondering if it still holds true?

Found a site that cross references the original discontinued gm part numbers to moog part numbers and advance has both so I'm going to try them out.
Upper control arm 462980 is moog K6170
Lower control arm 470722 is moog K6163

SOUNDS LIKE all the vendors are starting to discontinue parts for the Fiero.
I got steering rack TRW inner tie-rod ends at $5 each as a closeout from Rock Auto last month.

I guess we'd better stock up while these things are still around.

Folks...keep in mind that the front LCA bushings aren't listed for 88s anymore by Moog.

The 84-87 front LCA bushings from Moog are the same as the 88 bushings. (diameter, length, etc.)

The UCA bushings are still available, and the 84-88s have the same part # by Moog.

Yeah, I've also not seen a single Fiero in the junkyard in the past ~2 years. About 3-4 years ago, I saw at least one every other weekend. A couple of years before that, there were at least two every weekend. Keep in mind, they fly-through cars every week, so when I say that I saw them... they were "new" to the yard. I can remember 10 years ago when there were rows of them.

Haven't seen one in 2 years now... haven't even seen any on the road lately either.
