Prothane convertible body bushings

Does anyone know what the difference is between the coupe and convertible body bushings? I called Prothane and all I could get from the technician was that the part numbers were different.

I installed the coupe bushings in my convertible and it seems like the fender to rocker gap is too large at the bottom on both sides. Almost seems like the subframe is tipping upward making the core support sit too high.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Maybe I was thinking wrong all those years but I always thought those bushings were the same coupe or convertible.

Re: Prothane convertible body bushings

I can't believe there is a dimensional difference but I was curious if someone knew why Prothane has convertible and coupe bushings. Probably marketing.....
