Question Did you press CABs into your existing carriers? What's the P/N for just the bushing?

I can't find a P/N anywhere for just the rubber bushing but since I have a shop press I figured I would press new rubber into my existing carriers and call it a day.


For the record I checked:

realoem.com
ecstuning.com
fcpgroton.com
pelicanparts.com
autohausaz.com


I can find poly ones but not oem or equivalent rubber ones...


Thanks in advance!

I've seen several threads of the carriers failing after being reused. I'd suggest just getting new assemblies.

Probably so. I guess they just get a little fatigued. I wouldn't chance it, though. Nice to save a buck, and normally I'd be all for it, but they're less than $100 shipped.

I don't think the rubber bushings are available separately from the carriers. The urethane bushings are available separately.

The threads about failed CAB lollipop housings make me pee my britches. Go find AdamBath's thread about the massive suspension and body damage that he sustained when his CAB lollipop broke, then go get new housings.
