I have read this thread 100 times....fascinating! As I will be changing all bushings soon.........I have gathered the Crown Vic kit AND the Energy Suspension(for core support) are the best alternatives to the originals.

Here is a nice picture of my original core support bushing...

Hello again. There is a Crown Vic kit on Ebay....but heck....it costs 350 bucks!,  seems very expensive!

Of course it comes with all mounting hardware...but still...expensive.

Any ideas appreciated....thanks.

This is the kit.....

i'll have to measure one for you, but keep in mind i think someone stated the crown vic bushings are a little taller so you may need  slightly longer bolts??? but you don't want them too long as some could interfere with the upper trunk floor layer??
