Prepping for series 2 REASSEMBLY!

Since my son and I are making good progress on thE series 2, I need to get replacement parts coming
I want parabolics and poly bushings. I recall seeing some greasable poly bushings but can locate them in google now. Can someone point me in the right direction to purchase these items?

Pretty sure Bill Davis sells them at Great Basin Rovers or GBR Utah as they are now called.

John;

My son and I just completed a 1966 Series IIa. My other Series truck had T.I. Console paraolics, poly bushes and Koni shocks. The truck we just finished has Haystees (formally T.I. Console) parabolics with Bilstein shocks from Great Basins. I installed the poly bushes and greasible bolts too. The Bilsteins are great shocks but are super stiff. I would highly recommend the set up.

John;

I'd go with Bilsteins. I do recall having to get different bushings for them. Bill at Great Basin had those as well. I feel I have the best set up avalible for a Series truck. This truck is a 1966 Series IIa. Current set up is a pick up with the 3/4 canvas.

I am happy to answer any questions. Let me know if I can help.
