Body Bushing Replacements

Hi All,

I am looking for some replacement body bushings/mounts for my Jeep. I will be installing a lift and taking my body lift out. Three of the upper rubber bushings under the doors are cracking, and I am totally missing the lower half of one of the body bushings that go over the rear axle. I believe I am able to find the replacement for the rear axle bushing and I will be able to get new screws through OSH or a similar hardware store. My issue is with finding a replacement bushing for the 6 center upper rubber mounts... I can only find it in the package which I do not need. Does anyone know where I can pick up just 3 of the bushings?

That's what I did. I checked with them and Morris 4x4 but was unable to locate the part

I don't want to have to buy the whole kit for like $120 when they cost around $3 individually...

Oh damn, that sucks. Have you looked on ebay? I have found a lot of used TJ parts on there that my TJ "lacked" when I bought it.

I was missing one, and picked it up from a local auto parts store. Look online for this part:
Dorman 924-356

Also, note that there are two different sizes, so be sure to get the right one.

Quick question did you ever change out the bushing on your stock control arms? I know there was a thread started about it and I was wondering how you made out?

It went well! I only have done the lowers so far and I may not do the uppers but we will see. I used my mechanic's shop press and while he doesn't have the proper cups/sockets for them we made it work and it was pretty darn easy to do. Just a lot of driving back and forth to his shop for each arm.

Those suckers are pressed in there real good though, so if you do not have access to a press I would suggest just spending the money and getting the Moog arms with the bushings already pressed in.

I have adjustable MC's on my ride. I chimed into that thread and suggested just swapping them for new OEM as it seemed like a lot of work. I was curious on how it went.
