Westfeild style top hat suspension bushes

I am after some bushes. They are not on the westfeild web site .checked various other sellers to no avail. Can anyone supply me with some. Or where for sale. Not the poly bush ones. Also the steel tube ends. I am making my own wishbones. Thanks.

Not everything they have available is on their site like, for example, a particular clutch release bearing I need for my project so well worth a phone call.

Westfields as a rule of thumb use either metalastic, polybushes or solid nylon.

Metalastic

Poly

Nylon

As for the nylon "hat" type bushes, as far as I know, Westfields no longer sells tyhis type. They are available here :

http://www.plays-kool.co.uk/acatalog/Nylon-Suspension-Bushes.html

Or at the ralydesign.co.uk (propably the blac ones, Yellow ones are softer than nylon black ex-Westfield / Playskool).

Aftetr some research so far, I think the best should be powerflex , which are on the Westfield parts shop, because of the thickest crush tube sidewall.
With thin tube sidewall there are some damages to chasis wishbone brackets - small contact area.
