I'm doing a little research and need to know the overall length of the lower control arm bushing used on 70 - up (AMX, Javelin, Hornet, Etc.) front suspension. I don't seem to have one and neither do my local parts store's, and I'm finding conflicting spec's from the bushing manufactures.
Thanks for the help again!!!

I have a couple of Moog K3059 on the shelf, I can measure this evening if someone else doesn't chime in.

Wow, you are correct.  Just a cursory search on OAL:

NAPA 1.77"
Advance 1.41"
O'Reilly's 2.05"

Quite a spread.  Too bad someone doesn't have an OEM bushing to compare as the aftermarket seems to be all over the map.

I dont have them assembled, but I do have the parts as they are to be fitted. There was at least one set of oem i took apart. The after market ones are of same size, just end washers are a bit different in diameter.

Though in remembering fitment in all my install and removal of lower and upper arms. The bushings are a wee shorter than the pocket walls that keep them in place. A slightly snug fit. So a simple wall to wall measurment should put you into the ball park.

I will see about the bushing lengths and post them.

About 2" is the length of my lower arm bushing, when assembled.

Though if the washers are not part of the kit, then you could see the bushing more like 1.68" or so in length.

I assume some of the measurments are on sleave width, without washers being part of the kit.
