The ultimate early Charger suspension improvement (well maybe not the ultimate but pretty darn good) is to switch the K frame and lower arms to the 1970 style with the sway bar going through the K member. This setup has the better through bolt idler arm design, provides better oil filter access, and the sway bar mounting design allows the popular 73-76 A body disc brake conversion to be installed with forward hung calipers for factory engineered hose routing.

When you convert to polyurethane bushings, they say to leave the outer shell of the original bushing in place. You sound like you are using stock rubber bushings, in which case the entire original bushing needs to come out. This is hard to describe, but bear with me - when you look at the arm right now, everything toward the middle of the arm, from the vertical surface is the bushing shell, as well as the flange on the outer side of the arm. The only portion that is part of the arm is the 1/4 'extruded' part leading out to that flange. If you look at your new bushing, it will be easy to understand what is the arm and what is the residual shell.
I have rebuilt about 10 front suspensions and have slowly evolved an
(If you try to press out scaly bushings with the kit, you will destroy the power-screw - ask me how I know that)
