    Where can I buy some strut rod bushings, I'm trying the stealer tomorrow, but all the parts stores I've checked don't carry them. Any suggestions? I think I may try NAPA as well.

    thanks for the link. I can't tell if those are what I need, I'm looking for the bushings that have the nut on top of the strut and are between the top plate and have washers.

    So the Stealer wanted $110 plus tax for the bushings and washers. $40 for the bushings alone. I'm not sure I want to spend that type of money, so I'm most likely not installing my 5100's. Unless I can get some at a junkyard, or somewhere else.

    They are Rancho shocks, and the bushings, and possibly the washers are too thick.
