Define 'quality'? OEM rubber style? As was said above, Wilcox or a Corvette specialty shop. Poly? I get Energy Suspension from Rock Auto.

I have ordered up some A-frame bushings, ball joints and other front end parts, and trailing arm bushings/parts from "Americas Finest Corvettes" at CorvetteUSA.com. They profess to have parts that are the very nearest to factory original that are NCRS acceptable. So I want the best for my 1969 Survivor.Will see how they work out.
Found them mentioned in an older Corvette Forum post.

MOOG is a very common aftermarket brand and believed to be high quality. Also called Federal Mogul...same company. A decent parts house will be able to get these for you.

The search for "bushings" on the Fed Mogul website came up empty, so no help there!

MOOG K304 are the lower control arm bushings.
Not sure about trailing arms, but I think it's MOOG K200921

Do a search on this site for them and then back away slowly... They scammed me out of $600.

When you get ready to install them ,put them in your freezer for a couple of day, makes the job a snap

Dale, my advice is to stay with the rubber bushings. The poly bushings really have a tendency to squeak. I have installed both types, several times and will only use rubber (as original) from now on.
