Has anyone come up with a replacement bushing for the lower mounting? If the shock is still good but the bushing is worn out what are you using as a replacement?

Find a chunk of strong hose at Napa or a hydraulics shop

I believe energy suspension makes poly shock eye bushings. They might have something that could work.

Google shock absorber bushings and you gets a lot of sources. Advance auto is the first one on the list. Jim

I did that and don't see anything that resembles the original. Mostly nylon stuff.
