    I bought a 2002 v8 with 166,000 mi about 5 months ago, and went to contact the mechanic that the previous owner had taken it to. And guess what, the guys number is disconnected, joy. So I was going to get a list of parts that were replaced, but there goes that idea. Now here is my question, on the front uca's, there are these bushings, I assume these are not original, correct me if I am wrong. 20200315_150524.jpg 20200315_150531.jpg 20200315_150539.jpg

    If the guy who you bought this LS from was telling the truth...he said your car was stored in winters ...so they're more than likely Originals ...Just in good shape

    Curiosity got the better of me, and I just had to ask. Although if I had looked longer, I would have seen that these are not original uac's. Lookie here. 20200316_202759.jpg Last I checked, original parts dont have barcodes.
