or is it part of the whole shock absorber assembly?


I just got my 1 owner '89 out and drove it 170 miles round trip to the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Ky today. On the drive home I started to get a rattle, thought it might be exhaust. When I got home and looked under car the drivers side shock bushing is gone. Car has 32K miles.


If it is a Racecraft bushing, can I buy somewhere?
If it's part of the shock assembly, can an exact replacement be found?


Thanks!

Are these the red colored bushings?

Red colored, at bottom of the vertical shock.

I believe "some" had success buying red urethane bushings from places like Energy Suspension.

OK, thanks Dave. Maybe someone will chime in later with a part # or the exact size I need to ask for if I contact Energy Suspension.

Anybody get these from Energy Suspension? If so, did they work? And do you have a part number?

Norm,

I purchased the following bushings from Summit. I forget which one ended actually working, but I swapped the rear bushing out in about 10 minutes. I held up the new bushing and compared it to the one on the shock and completed the change over.

Thanks 70 cobrajet.


I ordered all four items a few minutes ago. Price was so low why not?:smile:


I'll try to remember to post on here which one is the best fit, for the next person who has this happen.
