sorry if this has been asked/answered but I cannot find a "search" feature

 

I have some older Spec Miata Bilstein shocks. 

 

Front F4-B46-1488-H1 and Rear F4-B46-1489-HO. 

 

I need new bushings for the lower eyelet mountings. 

 

Does anyone know where to buy these?

Summit racing sells them

Really, thanks

 

any idea how to search for that?  or do you have a part number?

 

Summit wants year/make/model to search that isn't really relevant

 

and they say the part number of the shock itself is not available

As weird as it sounds, I don't like to change. they will be beat back flat shortly and while getting beat flat.. your ride height changes as it settles. A few track events later and your bushing will likely look the same way

I use a spherical bearing -- then cut 1/4 inch off each side of the replacement bushing when bolted up it looks the same and ride height stays put :)
