Thanks much, Have not had any luck finding correct control arm shafts with o rings from major parts distributors. NPD shows pics of correct shaft online but when I recieved shipment they had the grease seal on outside, the same with all the Moogs.
YUPP! That's what I have found also. Even some NOS Ford replacement control arms can have different-looking pieces (end caps for example). A difficult detail to "get it right" in looks while repairing any "slop".
FWIW, on a non-driven restoration, a person 'could' mix original parts up a bit, install new 'O'-rings and achieve satisfactory results if perhaps the shafts or ends are not worn too much. I probably WOULD NOT mix up parts & pieces from different makers or even originals if it were a "driven" restoration. I doubt the bushings would remain "snug" over time of use (mileage of use).
Size of upper control arm shaft O-rings is: 3/16" THICK 11/16" I D - 1,1/16" O D
