Default Poly control arm bushings?

Does anyone happen to know where I can buy a full set of polyurethane control arm bushings? It looks like the ones from zzp are only the rear bushing. The performance arms from wbody store have the poly bushings in them but I cannot afford to buy all new arms right now, especially when I have a whole shop at my disposal to press in new bushings.

I'd say search around well. They got them from somewhere by doing the same.

You gotta talk to places like Dorman, Energy Suspension .... those places. Get them from the source.

well, been trying with energy suspension, no luck contacting their customer service.

Got a reply from the wbody store, they'll sell their bushings separate for 40$ front and rear. 80$ total. Better than buying new LCAs. If they can't get them to me before the weekend, I'll probably just order complete Moog LCAs and call it done. My ball joints aren't in bad shape but at least I'd have new ones that are grease-able.

well got the first and only reply yesterday from W-body store. In my second email I asked about shipping time and have gotten no reply yet. That and their no phone policy irks me a lil. I'm sure they have their reasons.

Guess I'll be buying complete Moog LCA'* from O' Reilly'*. They come with the problem solver Ball joints that are greasable. I can always seam weld them and install poly bushings down the road. When ever I can find a reliable source.

bought energy suspension end links and mid point bushings for the front sway bar from o' reillys along with the LCAs and ordered UMI Trailing arms. Along with my eibachs, koni struts and other GMPP pieces I've obtained, I'm done with the suspension.
