Post Urethane Bushing Data

Does anyone know of a site or source where one can find dimensional data on urethane bushings, preferably with illustrations, for use in upper and lower control arms. I am getting ready to fabricate tubular control arms, for a home built, and plan to use off the shelf bushing but would rather review data first without having to purchase a set for a particular make of car.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks. After searching dozens of sites I don't know how I overlooked this one. They look like a class operation.

I rebuilt the entire front end of my '72 Ranchero with their products and very happy. The Polyurethane is a bit more "stiff" (over OEM) in ride and handling. I have been warned about squeeks after a time but a little Silicon quiets 'em down I'm told. So far however at about 5k miles with just good handling characteristics. I would do it again on a driver. Good Luck,r

I'm not too concerned about ride quality on this project. It will be a single place road rocket commuter with the main objective being to get from point A to point B with max speed and handling with a generous amount of grin factor thrown in.
