Hey guys,

I'm upgrading the rear suspension on my 65. I'm trying to reuse whatever hardware that is salvageable. The rubber plate insulators are shot, however and need to be replaced. Does anyone know where I can get them? The spring insulator and spring clamp plate are good, it's the rubber bushing, the service manual identifies it as the plate insulator.

Not to steer your in a different direction, but the rubber insulators caused more issues than they solved, and were deleted from future production. Rebuilders usually ditched them when re-assembling. I would try to source them (fresh - not NOS), but if no joy, it wouldn't bother me to leave them out. That's me. I do know one guy that used conveyor belting to make replacements.
