Lower Control arm bushings?

Hello again,

I am replacing the bushings on the lower control arms of a 68 convertible clean. The driver side arm had front and rear bushings that were both round. On the passenger side the front busing was round, but the rear was oval. Is that common or does that indicate that at one time one of the control arms was replaced?

Thanks

oh my

by 68 the GTO's .at least the 50ish I have worked on all had round oval ...

maybe a few chevelles still or maybe a tempest ... but fairly sure they were using the round oval

style on most of them by 68
