Lower ones are very hard to find. I've been looking for over a year. Part number 9751193. They have a metal tab that later ones and replacements do not have. They were replaced by pn 9756251 in August of 1974.

If originality means something to you then expect to pay a premium if you can find them.

Do you mean your old ones have the tab or the new ones? Almost always when they get replaced the rubber boots are torn unless they cut the A-arm bore to relieve the press fit.

I'll ask that question specifically and let you know what he says. I'll take pics when I pick it up. Should be Wednesday or Thursday.

Mechanic was not there first still recovering from covid. And the tech working on the car said not replaced. But when I get the car next week I'll ask the mechanic about this item.

Any update? I’m in the need of the factory correct ones with the tab too.
