Someone posted this before....I forgot...and it led to a lot of cussing.

The EBAY ones need to be countersinked WAY deeper to match that of the OEM style. The angle is also not a typical countersink you would find at home depot. I would have to measure, but I believe it is a 72 degree...not 90 or 82.

I have purchased both of the linked bushing types. I have not yet installed either of them, but as far as perceived quality I do prefer one over the other. Below are each of the recently mentioned links and my thoughts.

I understand a part doesn't need to look pretty to work and I haven't installed them so this is less about buyer beware and more about appearance.

Ebay : best4autoparts1

Again, I understand that the appearance of this part does not guarantee it fits or is durable, but packaging and part appearance indicate more thought and possibly quality of work went into the ones from this vendor between the two I have purchased from.

As with all things Ebay YMMV, but as a person who has both sets sitting on the shelf I can testify one (best4autoparts1) vendor appears to be offering a better product at a cheaper price

I will buy another set of the "good ones" to compare and take some measurements as well.

Thanks for the info Rich!
