Rear End Crossmember Cushions?

Would anyone know of the best place to purchase these? Mine have gone bye bye lol.

Thank You everyone in advance. :)

I was thinking that instead of replacing the Cross member Cushions I could just go ahead and mount it solid? But I have had a couple of people wade in to say that I should just replace the bushings so they would isolate the vibration.

I will be going with a mild Big Block of 550HP though. And since I am dismantling the whole rear end suspension I would rather do it right the first time and not have to go back for some time. :)

Hosspowerinc thank you for the info. But I think I am going to go with the stock rubber mounts and use the locater kit.

And if you are going to drag the car at all then yes you should keep the rubber snubbers. You would want to adjust this so your rear suspension when it goes down on acceleration does not go too far past center.

Speak with 427 HotRod on this one. :)
Not dragging but road racing. Still am keeping the snubbers tho. I have a new locating kit Ill sell you if you dont have one yet.
Thank you but at this time I have the locating kit which is just two round 1/2in thick alum plates.
Yeah the same I have. Just thought Id ask. Good luck getting everything back together!
I am still taking it apart lol. Just trying to get my ducks in a row for one good shot. :)

And I am soaking everything with PB Blaster as if it was free lol.

Since I am back there I am going to replace the fuel tank as well with a new one and throw a Holley Black fuel pump back there as well and plumb it so my new Big Block will have enough fuel just incase I push the go peddle above Idle lol. :)
