  • Inner "A" Arm Bushing Dimension

    Can anyonr supply the dimensions (ID, OD, Length) of the inner suspension bushings (originally rubber), later (up to 1964) Hawk? I'd rather not tear mine apart if someone has the spec's available.

    Thanks for your help,
    Paul Keller

      Pretty sure he wants both. Sucks that Noltec is in limbo right now, that
      really sounded promising!

        Yes, both upper & lower inner bushings, the originally rubber ones. Any help in providing the ID, OD and Length would be of great help.
        Thanks, Paul K

          I am having a vendor on the GTO forum check with WhiteLine and Lovells to see if
          they purchased left over stock from Noltec. Apparently WhiteLine bought Noltec.

            Tom,
            Thanks for the info - Let me know if you get a + or - response.

            Also, Sure could use the bushing spec's - Trying to finish the engine and don't want to be tearing something else apart right now.

              No dice from Lovells, they don't carry them. Did you try Whiteline? They bought Noltec.

                Sorry it took so long to get back to you but I have been very busy lately.
                Lower. .880" ID 1.450" OD 1.582" long including the shoulder.
                On the ID the part that I measured was a Harris Silent and the dimension varied from .880" to .8815"

                  Alan,
                  Thanks for the lower dimensions - Its a good start.

                  Does anyone have the same for the Uppers??

                    These will vary quite a bit because of different runs of them and a slight angle built into them. You could find 4 different size ranges but don't want to go wrong. Measure the HOLE that they go into.

                      Very good point - Does anyone have the dimesions for the upper, inner "A" arm holes (diameter and length) plus the diameter for the bracket that bolts to the frame?
