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?
