Re: [T3] Update: Front torsion arm thrust washers

I seriously wouldnt use those red ones... they were far inferior in material
makeup to the late silver ones. they tended to break up easily but if your
careful with your car and keep things lubed you may be OK for a while.
The silver ones are easy to get.

Those bearings were quite a find!  Congratulations!  I sold out of mine
years ago and have had ALOT of people asking me for them.  Hopefully in the
spring I can cut up some more rusty beams and have more available.  Be sure
you dont use bad arms with those choice NOS bearings, it would ruin them

Grease seals are simply an O ring on the upper arms... no need to search any
farther than your hardware store.
