    ABLinn had them when I needed them. Don't expect them to last a very long time though. I've never had good luck with rubber spring bushings (that I assume to be NOS). Urethane would be better but that'll take more sleuthing to come up with the right ones.

    Does these part numbers apply to the rear springs also?

    The rear spring bushings are a steel on steel design. Theses are greasable. And if greased regularly, should never wear out. The biggest problem is lack of greasing & then you can't get them to take grease. You can heat them with a torch to get them to take grease.
