    Thanks, Unfortunately he doesn't have any rubber ones, but he does stock neoprene which is probably what I will have to buy.
    Thanks for your help.

    These guys have rubber ones for other British cars, it would be worth calling them and seeing of they can source some or if they have a similar one that can be modified.

    I think I have a QH set in storage.  I will see if I can find you a part number.

    I would sooner custom-cut the rubbers out of an old Crossply Tyre before I'd fit that rubbish Nolathane/Neoprene/whatever  .............   Ive still got some Genuine Mackay Neoprene that have turned to CHEESE while New-In-Box !  ......  Mackay were not interested !
    There's more than one good reason why ALL new vehicles have used Rubber and Rubber/Steel for the last 150 years !
    My 1965 Valiant Regal which my Aunt purchased NEW is just now showing signs of tired rubber suspension bushes ; only  57 years!
    You'd be lucky to get 57 months out of any of that modern junk, which ONLY has its place at the race track or bush bashing,(maybe), as long as you're happy to spend hours changing them regularly as engine oil !

    While we're on this subject, if anyone has part numbers of the Rear Spring Front Eye Bush and the Axle Housing to Body 4 Bushes plus the Axle housing Track Rod to Body 4 Bushes, and /or there DIMENSIONS, i would be much obliged and appreciative.
    As I have dozens of different design Bushes in stock for different Makes and Models, I'm hoping to alter them in the lathe to suit our Mk1 Capri, before i pull mine apart and replace the nolathane rubbish the previous owner had fitted.
    Theyre actually "crumbling" like pizza cheese while the Capri was in cool dry garage storage for years!

    If there is any real demand for these, I can manufacture rubber spring rubbers to OEM specifications.  I would require one pair in good condition in order to prepare a mould.  Depending on numbers I can provide a price prior to manufacture.

    For the sake of being shot down here. I too have had the experience of Bernie.
    But upon investigation there appears to have been a few dodgy batches over the years from a few manufacturers.
    I cannot recall the make of the worst offenders, they were a light blue colour (not Super Pro).
    I have had many on cars for well over 10 years and still perfect.
