Great info guys! Looks like one arm was done with a new style bushing that never had the washers swapped. No big deal for me, but for first timer AMC guys, may never know, unless they stumble upon this thread, or something like it.

Looking at the washers, i could probably reproduce similar like items with hardware from Fastenal. Looks like the outer edges are rounded, and may have to ream the ID slightly depending on what is availible for fitment.

Probably never will attempt, since these washers are more for historical reference.

Though my Prothane bushing kit instructions mention washers, but has two different methods of fitment with same components. I will look deeper into possibly adding modified flat washer hardware to limit side load wear and looseness if tolarances allow it.

Thanks for all the great replies.
