Hi,
 
I am having trouble finding a source for some parts for my '79 thunderbird rebuild.
 
Swaybar bushes. This is for a factory rear sway bar, after the bushes on the axle, as well as the ones where the links attach to the frame.
 
Also after the bump stops for the rear axle. Not sure what you call these? The Diff snout snubber? and the bump rubbers that sit in the wheel arches of the frame.
 
Here is a picture of the suspension, just before I take it apart.

Also, would anyone know where I could find a replacement 27 gallon fuel tank. Is this the same as the 26 gallon tank listed for the ranchero? I see there is the standard 22 gallon tank, but the Heritage gets the bigger tank.
