Where do I find bolt sleeves for connecting the inner and outer bumper arms on 64 1/2? When I removed the arms from the frame, one pair was joined with a sleeve (which took a grinder to remove) while the other only had the bolts. The sleeve is indicated in the shop manual, but I have not been able to find it at any of the parts suppliers. Thanks.

I know what you're talking about and I haven't seen a replacement - not that I looked very hard. The sleeve is like a big hollow rivet which allows the bumper bracket bolt pass through. I've always wondered why Ford used one on each side. I think it's an aid in the assembly of the car - I've ran without them and haven't suffered any ill effects so far...

Regards,
