Stabilizer bushings

Does anyone know where I could find the rear stabilizer bushings, for the 1956 Clipper. I looked in my Steel catalog: but nothing in there specifically for the Packards. To me they look a lot like shock absorber bushings. If not I guess I'll just start measuring and see what comes close. As you would expect mine are dry, rotted, and falling apart.

Thanks Dave O

You could make do with shock absorber eye bushings, and you can also buy the correct shape bushings in rubber from several sources or in polyurethane from Dwight Heinmuller. Having tried all these approaches over the years, I strongly recommend the latter.

Thank you. Dwight was able to hook me up with these bushings. And alot more. He is great! I will be puchasing the replacement bushings for the whole car, however as the car has the engine out and front clip off, and no lift in my shop. I'll have wait untill its driveable for the rest.

Thanks Again;
Dave O

Check the center bushing . Group 13.11678
It wasn’t included in the kit I bought, from Dwight. and I required it. I bought mine from Max Merritt
