I am rebuilding my front suspension and I was wondering if the red polyurethane bushing(on the left)can replace the gray nylon bushing (on the right)when I install the bolt that connects the wishbone arms to the wheel assembly? The red one is bigger so it will be a tight fit if I do replace the gray one with it.

Just wondering if that is the bushing for the upper fulcrum?

It is and I used them for that but I have four left enough for the bottom one on both sides and I'm not sure if I can use them.

I don't think so off the top of my head.

On the bottom of the fulcrum pin you want stability, the nylon is what should be there. Very like the MGB, poly is fine for the inboard attachment of the a-arms but at the kingpin pivot you need a bushing, not compliant material. :thumbsup:
