    free door striker bushings

    Anyone want any? I made them out of pvc on a lathe and sanded to length. They work perfect on my own car.

    I am getting pm's. If i dont reply, dont stress, I'll just mail them to you. Also, please let me know if there are any problems with them. They do work on my car but you never know. I dont mind sendin another set out at different specs but if they aren't quite right i would like to know before i make a bunch. If you guys need any small round parts, just let me know. Most of my work is with aluminum. I get cut offs. Sometimes up to 4" in diameter. That limits my tooling from small pins to possibly a blower pulley.

    I am shipping the first orders monday. Everyone i have an address for will get a set shipped then. If you wanna donate, just mail somethin back. I really dont mind doin it. The wall thickness varied on the pvc. It didn't affect mine. The o.d. is consistent. Also, they are rough cut to length. Probly a mm or so long. You can grind them down if you want a true edge. I just tightened mine and squished them. Enjoy lemme know if they work

    Are they the front mounts? If i am right, i tried to find a set cause mine were clunking. I couldn't find any so i modified mine. The only thing listed were pinion bushings and rear carrier bushing but were unavailable. Is this the right part?

    Didn't someone just crack their aluminum differential case from using aluminum front bushings with a stock rear mount? Just something to consider...

    They are the carrier bushings. And a good friend of mine is running them without issue on a sced 4.6 mn12.

    The fit and function on the passenger side (which was still OEM factory ) was so good, I replaced the Dorman part on the driver's side!

    Mr. Matthews - I think you really ought to be selling these here, and over on TCCoA. There's a market for these at a reasonable price - and considering the striker bolt kit is about $7 to $15 EACH, I bet you could mail these out for like $5 to $7.50 shipping included.

    A good part, a good fit, and something we need. I give two thumbs up!
