67 rear control arm bushings

Can anyone tell me if on a 67 Impala, the rear control arm bushings are the same, front and rearward? I was given a Moog #K6075 for the rear, but unclear about the forward one.

It seems that most places show the same part number, but on my 67 I had smaller & larger ones. & it was a bitch to find the other ones.


I used the ones shown below.

Do you have a 12 bolt under the car?

I was wondering if a previous owner might have installed a 12 bolt out of a Chevelle (which used Moog K5161 bushings) in place of the standard Impala that uses Moog K6075 bushings. I know a lot of Chevelle owners steal 12 bolts out from under Impalas to build a Chevelle SS clone so it might have gone the other way.

No I have a 10 bolt rear differential, so does that mean that both bushings are the Moog #K6075 ?

Yes they should both be the same size on both ends of the control arm.

Thanks for all the input. Before I buy them, I will get under the car and measure them both.

I disagree! I have a full size - not a Chevelle - 12 bolt. The control arms have different size bushings. AND its the diameter of the holes in the control arms that determine bushing size and part number! The bushings get pressed into the control arms not the axle.


The 2 photos clearly show the difference.

My Error I never worked on a pre '77 Impala. When I owned or in my case my mother owned a pre '77 Impala they were brand new cars in 1958, '65, and '68 that were traded for newer models every three to five years so aside from routine maintenance I did no work on them. I agree the bushings are pressed into the control arms and those are bolted to brackets welded on the axle tubes not pressed into cast iron ears atop the center section of the housing the way they are on the Chevelle and 1977-'99 Impala. Sorry for the confusion.

I figured they were different. The rear ones are Moog#K6075. The front are different, but I will find them. I have replaced the front control bushings already.
