Hi BigKev, (just a note on the side: I used to live in Yucaipa, just So. of San Bernardino. When I retired I moved to Vancouver WA. This time of the year I know that you're baking your brains out.....It's hot down there hum!!!).

Thank you for showing me your set up, I've got the rubber bushings located (Steele Rubber) and if I can't find a simple solution (stock) I can use your idea. I'm not much at making stuff but I can sure R/R stuff.

Regards, Steve........

HH56, thank you for the lead to Steele rubber. When I saw "riveted" in your post I ran out and looked at my set up and found my brackets are bolted to the frame. Thanks again.

I don't think I'll be going after the tow company, it's been one year and can't see much satisfaction coming my way. I think that if I pick and choose my battles I won't make myself crazy with my unmet expectations.

Front stablizer bar bushing and bracket

Last year I had my '51 Packard car towed by a flat bed truck.
I was not there when the driver used a chain to pull the car up the inclined bed. The driver hooked the chain to the RF stabilizer bar where the bushing and the bracket are bolted to the frame. Now I know what that thumping noise is when I go over a bump. The bracket is badly bent and the bushing has been squeezed out. I want to replace the bracket and the bushing. The LF bushing looks very good. Does any one have the bushing or the bracket?
Application: 1951 Packard 200, with a 288 engine.
Hope to be doing business with you Packard fans.

Regards, Steve
