Can you guys help me find a part?

I'm swapping out my front control arms soon and I need the rear bushing that's pressed into the "lollipop" I'm trying to avoid the webbed OEM style (being they're prone to breakage) and find some solid ones like the M3 but I can't seem to find any pre-pressed... I don't own a press and don't wish to try to (or have someone else) do it. If you know where I can find some here in the interwebz for a less-than-ridiculous price let me know!

Thanks for taking the time to look for those JB! From the looks of it solid bushings would be nice but I think I'm going to stick with the one's from pelican.

Well.....you are buying the whole bushing & lollipop as one, with bushing installed, I had to chisel the bushing out of the lollipop, & then I used the vice to press in new bushings..........

Are you replacing the control arms, also?

Ok......then you will need to lock the control arms into your bench vice, to remove & install the bushings on the ends of the control arms..........use liquid dish detergent to install the new bushings on the ends of the C-Arms....

Awesome thanks. I'll just order the solid bushings then and press them in myself.
