Bushing suppliers
 
I am looking for bushing suppliers. I have seen many suppliers listed in threads but not thinking failed to bookmark them.

What I need are the bushings with tube they go in for a traction bar I plan to build for my SOA. I know there are may suppliers of these but google just turns up bushings for stock springs or trailing arms.

If anybody knows where I can get these it would be a big help.

Can you not adapt your design to use a common stock bushing? I can't recall ever seeing a source for generic bushings.

I've dealt with Dan quite a bit and he's by far one of the better suppliers for the DIY crowd...

Go to your local NAPA and see what they have in stock....the one I use lets me go back into their stock shelves and browse........

And....I may get heat for this....but I would avoid polly bushings....much denser....transmits a lot more vibration.....I personally think Polly is over rated.

Thanks for the link, and ideas.

Ouch, 18 bucks each, and I need 4. I think I will dig through my stuff for some spring bushings and make my own. I had hoped they wound be cheaper. I agree on the poly bushings not being the best, I used them on the CJ and will be using rubber in the future, especially for body mounts.
