67 Impala Control Arm Sleeve

Hi Everyone,
I am in mid restoration of my 1967 Impala. In the process of replacing the bushing for the driver's side lower control arm I mistakenly removed the sleeve. It is no longer usable. Does anyone know of where I can find a replacement of either the sleeve or control arm ? Thanks. Matt

I just replaced all my bushings and they all came with new "sleeves". I think the poly ones need to re-use the old metal but the stock replacements come with the "sleeves" . I would suggest getting a standard relacement one like a Moog and then use the sleeve.

If you are using a metal insert (aluminum with a nylon jacket) it wouldn't be required either as the sleeve is to center the bushing and bite into the A-frame to provide the torque to flex the rubber bushing (not needed with plastic or metal bushings).
