    I have the one piece strut rod bushing for my 65 barracuda and want to make sure I put it in in the right direction. Does the long tappered end go towards the lca or is it the stubbier end?

    Goes in from the control arm side with the tapered end forward.
    Good luck with that, as most of us prefer the two piece bushing, and I personally believe the two piece are a better design.
