Link works for me , but may be keyed to individual's "cookies"?

At FastLane put in bearing bracket bushings for your year and they should come up.

You're right about a thorough evaluation of the area where the bearing bracket mates up. I guess I was assuming the best and shouldn't have. The slot itself (for the tab) doesn't get me too worked up, but the whole area there should be looked at when it's apart. I figured a Florida car........no real rust.....
