Anyone know where to get steering rack bushings (the cushions under the straps securing the rack to the frame)? Anyone used a different part that can be reworked or modified to work? All of the usual part suppliers are telling me the bushings are no longer available:eek:

At this point we need to make our own solution I guess. We have to make a replacement part out of polyurethane or as Jason has suggested, mount it solid with machined aluminum spacers. I'm in the process of moving so I can't even think about trying to make one right now. I have seen many places on the web where people have bought poly in liquid form, made a mold of the part they needed and poured their own rubber part. I think poly might work well in place of the original rubber part. Otherwise, you will have to substitute a mashed rubber hose or strip of thick rubber or something. :eek: Not the most elegant solution, but it would work.
