Small bushing specs--front lower
Dimension A O.D. : 1.36"
Dimension B I.D. : .51"
Dimension C Length : 2.4"
Dimension D Length : 2"
Dimension E Length : .23"
Dimension F Length : .56"
Dimension G O.D. : 1.42"

Big bushing specs--front lower
Dimension A O.D. : 1.65"
Dimension B I.D. : .57"
Dimension C Length : 2.41"
Dimension D Length : 2.03"
Dimension E Length : .24"
Dimension F Length : .32"
Dimension G O.D. : 1.67"

Lower rear bushing specs
Dimension A O.D. : 1.9"
Dimension B I.D. : .57"
Dimension C Length : 2.4"
Dimension D Length : 2"
Dimension E Length : .24"
Dimension F Length : .32"
Dimension G O.D. : 1.92"

As to why the front is different than the rear, I don't know. I speculate that the lower rear have greater force loads than the other ones.

If your rebuilding the rear suspension as well I recommend making the lower control arms as stiff as possible. boxed control arms are good but Tubular arms are better. Use poly bushings or solids on the lowers but use stock rubber on the uppers if the stock arms are used because the rear suspension will bind if you dont. I like the adjustable uppers that use a heim joint on one end to help eliminate binding.
