Suspension Bushings

I used to just replace the bushings in my other cars, everyone of them, but not my Boxter, oh no!Now that I have a low end car from a high end manufacturer I have to buy the whole da*n suspension. Isn't there somewhere out there where we can just get the bushings and have a shop press them in? What a concept. Please let me know if you know of a place such as this.

There are bushings available, but not through the volume channels that are typical of the Japanese manufacturers.

Powerflex is one example.

The remanufactured parts from Vertex have urethane bushings.

Thanks, Blue

Thanks for the info. I think I will try the Powerflex and see what happens. Has any one else on the board used these and have any more info on them?
