slow4dr Energy Suspension is the supplier.

I sent an e-mail to the sales department to make sure they are clear that the bushings are in fact available separately.

FWIW: I order these in anywhere from 2000-5000 quantites so there are plenty in stock at any given time for replacement orders like this.

Sorry for the confusion

Uppers = 2652.01
Lowers = 2618.06

Tried it...

If bad could not be worse.....I measured with a micro and picked up on some from Energy Suspension that were close enough to make we want to yell Halleluha!.....Then the order came in and I learned what a difference 1/32" can make in fit versus wobble. Anybody need some ES 9.1111? I have 8pair in the box. Lesson #2....Don't trust a cheap micrometer... $30 made in China...

ps....I've found a couple of references in cyber to some ES part numbers. Problem is they are not in the catalog. I'm trying to contact them by email to verify.....Hopefully they have just changed the part number and not gone out of production.

Again....anybody out there got information, it will be appreciated.... :

Arrowhead Can you measure the dimensions of the bushings and source them from the aftermaket? I know they are melted, but you should be able to get an inside dia, outside dia and a length and find them somewhere.

One would think....

I find this interesting and I do agree that one would think they have bushings in stock. I've had trouble getting a return call. So, I starting working through the Yogis where I purchased the chassis. They told Yogis that since I bought the chassis six years ago they don't carry the bushing anymore....then they told them I could buy them but I'd have to buy the control arms as well.....because that was they way they bought them as a complete unit....And again, will not even provide the OEM. I find this all very bizarre. Anyone out there got contacts at TCI....perhaps you could get them to reconsider.
ps...Just fyi...Yogis has been great in trying to assist, but unfortunately have had no better luck than I with TCI.

eloc431962 Sorry about you bad luck, i found this on another site thought you might want to read this. TCI chassis http://www.classicshoptalk.com/steer...all-apart.html .in case the link don't work here is what they did for this guy. I bought a TCI front end with a power rack. The rubber mounting bushings started to fall apart within months and really look like heck after a year. I bought a second front end and these bushings are now polyurethane.

{I just called TCI and they are SENDING ME A SET OF POLY BUSHINGS at no charge. }

You know they are bound to have replacement bushings for these parts. JMO

TCI Mustang, 36 Ford

My project was toasted in a fire just before going to the paint booth. I'm in the rebuild process but have run in to a problem. All rubber in front suspension melted away. TCI will not sell rubber bushings by themselves and will only sell with complete new control arms. Also unable or unwilling to advise who their supplier is...My control arms are fine as the fire was not hot enough to threaten metal. To make my point, the body did not even warp and that would be the first to go. I thought I had solved the problem with bushings I ordered from Energy Suspension. I now find that they fit in only two of the three ways required. So, my question is.....by chance is there anyone out there who has a TCI chassis for a 35-40 Ford with the Mustang front end and who has had to replace the bushings? If so, then do you recall where you got them and do you have the part number?
