Shock grommets (or bushings?) on YJ

I'd need to change them, at least the rear ones. I know they cost under a dollar in the States, but nobody wants to ship me just those. I'd buy them here, but I don't know if they are "stem mount style" or "hourglass style", nor their size.

Anybody has any info on this?


Just found out that those are (maybe) SHOCK BUSHINGS that I need. It's those rubber/poly thingies that go inserted in the shock eye, so the bolt goes through that rubber/polyy instead of touching metal around.

1. So why not cut down the "Boat Rollers"?

1. The look kind of like this:



2. There are many sizes and shapes,
3. WIth and without steel tube inserts.
4. Look at local marine supply houses, or boat trailer facilities.
5. These thing are what's used on a boat trailer to protect a boat hull on a trailer.
6. Here's a pictur of a Keel protector:



7. I'm sure you can find similar parts locally,
8. And much less expesivly than importing them.
