I heard that statement for the first time when a Honda Goldwing owner offered to tow a guy's Harley.

Found some that will work.  http://suspension.com

part number:  bulk-2007     $5.67 each, need four.MVIMG_20190227_161852779.thumb.jpg.b98869c59036e3eadc7d0bd2443cd107.jpg

 

 

They need some modification to fit:  the flange end is domed and is easily sanded, filed or ground down flat; they need to be cut to length...hose cutter worked for me.

They did not ship with lube, so buy some if you don't have on hand.

No sleeve. Other than the dome on the flange end and longer length they fit the 1 1/8 inch bore of the panhard bard and the the 5/8 inch pins.  They are installed, but no test drive yet.  I don't expect much difference from stock...just hope they last longer than the other available bushings.

"I don't expect much difference"  Wrong!  There is a huge difference.    Driving on crowned roads:  right lane or left lane (passing cars) it is as stable as any vehicle I own.  Same with high winds, up to 40 mph winds I have encountered (any direction)...I forgot I was driving a 55 Buick!  A combination of New + Polyurethane and the rear does not steer the car.  I am going to order some more for another 55.

Thanks for the check back Willie! I was seriously starting to think about a rear sway bar after my last jog over the mountains but now I have a much cheaper option to explore. As always, you are a great help to these forums and I appreciate you posting.

Also improvement on rough roads like railroad tracks.
