Default Help with Upgrade bushings (in canada)

Im looking to find a retail location or an online source to perchase McQuay-Norris FA7247 poly bushings.

so far the stores i have been to say they dont have them and can't get them.
the only online place I have found said they will not ship to canada.


So if anyone can help me get my hands ob these bushings, that would be great

The inner sway bar bushings? If so pm me your address and I'll see if I can get them from a local Advanced Auto Parts store in a few days. I'm sure there are a few others that would be willing to help if I can't.

No Pep Boys up here (that I know of.) Or Advance, O'rielly, or Autozone either. There may be a few, but I haven't seen any.

Peter, I just purchased Energy Suspension Poly Bushing for a different car and they came highly recommended. Any reason you want to stick to that brand?

I take your word on it Peter, therefore I don't need to do a search. What is 32 mm is that 1 1/4"? Would the ones below work, I especially think the red ones would match your outfit Peter. There'* alot more in the 32 mm size.

This solution won't work. I know, I have a set. The bracket is too weak and will bend because our subframe has a 'step' between the two bolt elevations. Those bushings still sit in my 'junk' bin from 3 years ago. Do not buy them. The bushing itself will not fit in the OEM clamp, either.
