Default FM sways/bushing

i got a new set of FM sways second hand. Does anyone know exactly what's supposed come with the bars. What i got was the 2 front bushings with the brackets, 1 rear bushing, and 2 bolts. Obviously i'm missing a rear bushing, am i missing anything else? I called FM yesterday and jeremy answered the phone, he didn't have a clue and said he would call the other building and then call me back, i never got a call. So does anyone know what else i'll need and if FM will at least sell me the one bushing i'm missing, i think they should as they are a wear item.

My other option is that racing beat sells bushings on their site, and both the rb rear sway and fm rear sway are 5/8 so i should be able to use either, correct?

It's been a while since I put the FM bars on my car, however if memory serves, you will need the bushing and brackets.

Regardless the source, Outer Diameter is Outer Diameter.

you can re use your current rear brackets, but you'll need 2 bushings
