Default bushings?

Replacing the damaged leafs on my 73 40 this weekend with used stock replacements. (Thanks Ben!) Any idea where I could find some bushings locally? I will probably swap out all 4 leafs while I am at it, the new used ones look better than the ones on there. I plan on buying all new Skyjackers some day so I will get new brackets and shackles and greasable pins at that time...

Thanks!

Toyota rubber ones are like $2 a piece.

I'm sure ron at RMC has some in stock.

Tim,

If Ron doesn't have any (doubtful that he won't ), I've got a baggy full of these (new):

I don't know what size they are but I can look tonight if you are interested. They came with my '76 40 way back when.

Timm,

Did you find bushings? Not sure if these will work but I found the baggies of bushings I have. They are marked 289-40-C...Per SOR they are:

"40 Series S-O-R Poly Bushing-Black graphite impregnated polyurethane-Fits 1958-7/80 40 Series Con-Ferr Shackles, Performance Shackles (#288-80 & #288-81), & Extreme Shackles (#288-92 & #288-94)-Specifications: I.D.=5/8 inch, O.D.=1 inch, Flange=.195-A total of 24 bushings are required for entire vehicle-Sold each"

Looks like I have 16 of them...

If can't use 'em and someone else wants 'em let me know...You could make a small donation to the raffle rig fund

Jeff,

I could really use those. I am going to replace my shackles next weekend. What do you want for them?

Leif,

If you're sure they'll fit (looks to be all sorts of sizes on SORs page) any donation amount to the Raffle Rig will do

They are only a couple bucks a pc from SOR so whatever you feel is reasonable. You can pay me and I'll Paypal the $$ to RS for the raffle rig or you can do it directly yourself.

Let me know
