    I replaced mine last winter, I also have 1984. They were Energy Suspension Part# 4.10102G. Seemingly design changed on 10/84 by Energy catalog, there is different part number for newer. Originals were solid rubber but these replacements were split, probably for easier installation. http://energysuspension.com/parts-search.html

    Easy job when rack and pinion is off, remove old ones and replace with new ones

    The job isn't too complicated. Depends on whether you have the full solid or split bushings as to if you should pull the rack from the car. I remember doing mine in the car (86 model). I ran Energy Suspension poly bushings for many years and just moved to the solid bushings from Maximum Motorsports. Only reason for the move from poly to solid was that I had them and was curious how well the poly units held up. They looked brand new, FWIW after ~10 or so years of use. Not sure if I kept them or not, if so I would offer to send them off to you. Let me check and see.
