D90 radius arm bushings question

I bought an 86 rover 90 that was missing the washers in front of the bushings on the threaded end of the radius arms not back bushings but the ones in front of the frame bracket. Anyway I sent my arms out to be cranked by RTE. when I reassembled, I was referring to a parts diagram and noticed these were missing. I ordered a set but they showed up the afternoon I left for an overland tour across British Columbia. Anyway now the bushing on the one side is shredded making steering near impossible above 40mph and causing the arm to rub on the frame. I'm trying to source the part locally but I'm wondering if the disco series 1 arm bushing may be the same part as the defender? If so , that is at least more common.

The chassis end radius arms bushings don't change. Disco 1 bushings are the same. Crazy that you did not die without the front washer.

Just to clarify.... are you suggesting a washer between the bush and the chassis?

NRC4515 I'm guessing. You're right, he'd be missing a front axle without the big washer under the big nut.

To be clear... DA2353G | Front Radius Arm Bush Kit - Paddock Spares shows a complete kit of all parts used on a radius arm chassis end bushing set. Two bushings, two washers (one plain and one curved) and a nut.
