I was wondering if anyone knew of any local parts stores (autozone,orileys,napa) that would carry cradle bushing kits

I got my red prothane kit from Summit. They had the best price at the time. The have a store in OH and GA. So for me in GA its local.

I wish I had waited though. I have yet to install mine. Still in their pretty little box... LOL! I have an 84 and I think I would prefer to go with Aluminum mounts instead.

All of the places you mentioned can order the parts and have them for you the next day or two. Or you could order them off the internet and maybe save a few bucks. Another option is to go with aluminum bushings- http://rodneydickman.com/ca....php?products_id=270

Poly does work well, Even with many motor swaps. And cost less.
Poly is harder the rubber and won't wear or make noise for cradle bushing use.
(I hate poly in control arms. See my Cave, Bushings )

I think my cradle kit, black poly, is 10+ year old and no problem. I have my cradle out for other reasons and looks nearly new.

If you want rubber... No clue.
Moog and others don't list cradle bushings.
Can't get them thru GM parts dealers that I've seen.
