I have an '88 rack, but shipping it to Canada might be cost prohibitive. The plastic OEM bushings are no longer available, but Rodney Dickman makes a metal one......it's harder to install, but is a permanent solution to a sloppy bushing.

Rodney has the bushing the goes between the rack and the housing (good part). No one has the passenger side bushing to mount the housing to the sub frame. The driver's side is similar to the previous years and I believe is available.

Yea, don't do what I did. I figured the rubber bushings/mounts were a common part, so I destroyed my pass side one getting it off the rack. Now i'm screwed, because I can't find anything to fit. I am working on a poly fix, using a poly one meant for another application. If/when I figure it out, i'll make sure to let the forum know.

I made a mold and cast a set of the bushings/mounts with a two part polymer for my '88. If anyone's interested let me know. I'd have to figure out a price.

I'm thinking we took over this thread and the subject needs a proper build thread if someone is willing to start it...
