ok so heres my thought or idea...im redoing the rack in my 87 and have pretty much come to the conclusion that finding new mount bushings to be impossible...well here is my thought or should say idea...
is it possible to use large sway bar bushings and shaving and reshaping the one side to make it d shaped inside....could this be possible

does anyone by chance know the diameter of the iside of the mounts or of the rack itself

again this is just a brainstorm idea so any input would be great

Are those bushings really that hard to find? Are there 2 different parts or just one?

I removed my 88 rack bushing and had no idea that they were not avalible, so i purchased one from a newer toyota truck. I cut the old one in half so i could keep the overall shape, and cut down the new poly one to fit, its not pretty, but it works. Ill get some pics on here soon.

Not sure about 84-87, but the large one on the 88 rack is no longer avalible, the part number is searchable on the net, but its not instock.

I have yet to pull my rack off my car cause I'm waiting for my parts to get here but does anyone have an 84-87 rack not in a car that might be able to get a dia measurement of the 2 bushings.... It just seems like a possible solution plus an option for adding poly bushings there to stiffen things up
