So if I tried a 26mm universal poly you think it would be too small, or a 27 would be too big?? Looking for something to replace the worn stockers.

Are there any inch sizes that could get you closer? I would go a tad small before I would go a tad big.

I'm using 26mm ones. As CI-V-IL said, going a little too small is better. If I was really concerned about how tight they were I could just sand the inner bore a bit to open it up. If 27mm is too loose, though, there's really nothing you can do to fix that.

True, easier to take away then add, which poly mount are you using? I was thinking of something fron Energy Suspension in a universal mount and make it fit the V mount.

...just need to take a few measurements and find the bushing that matches.

That is exactly what I was looking at, thx. Any tips on end links? I was going to use Rock Auto for a Moog set, any other advice??

I can't remember if the ones I have are Energy or Prothane. Shouldn't matter much. I broached this subject before - I think if you search this forum or the Performance Mods forum for "universal" you'll find the details.
