not bad at all.
i thought the front strut rod to frame bushings were some sort of sleeve set up? that's what these look like.

Can you throw up a set of specs and tolerances of those so people with lathe access don't have to do any thinking?

I'll make a cleaned up drawing when I have time and post it.

Yes they were a sleeve set up originally I didn't think it necessary
to replicate them this is my design currently untested but will
shortly be going in my 95 followed by my 97

I look forward to the completed product. I am assuming these are the front bushings. Are you aware the inner part is 2 sleeves with 1 slidding inside the other?

I'd want to get slowmkviii's permission first. He did all the leg work. See if he'd like to make you a set first.

I haven't had time to put them in so both my cars go clunk still
If you want to make a set for someone go ahaed. I have no time
to get on the lathe right now and no garage to even put in my own parts.

Those look nice... if you go back with a factory bushing. I probably made a mistake going Poly...
