Yes, and the position that they mount is also critical.

Those replacement bushings are from a 300E.

The bushings with 124-333-43-14 are installed in the front & need to have the "FLAT" portion of the bushing installed so that they are perpendicular to the DRIVING surface (road).

The other bushing 124-333-42-14 go in the rear area & the flats need to be installed so that they are parallel to the ROAD.
