Are the poly bushings thinner or thicker?   Are your original bolts/washers in good shape?

I've never seen original bolts that were in good enough shape to reuse.

I used my original bolts and washers with urethane bushings and have had no problems whatsoever. Mine is a Southern car and they were in excellent shape. But--new bolts are not that expensive if you choose to go that route. Good luck.
