idler arm bushings...

is it possible to get replacement stock idler arm bushings? I cannot find them.

I sent an order and paypal to get Bandit4x4 bronze OEM bushings but no luck. Two and a half weeks ago I received an email stating they were awaiting new stock in a week's time and they would update me. My last two emails went unanswered.

My truck is off the road until I get new bushings.

Any suggestions?

i just took a quick look at one of the online dealership's sites (Courtesy Nissan) and saw idler arm hardware but not specifically the bushings. Have you tried your local Nissan dealer? I've been pleasantly surprised by a couple of pretty good deals getting parts from mine.

For ones that will wear out quickly:

For ones you'll probably never have to replace again:

Oops, sorry I didn't read your whole post. I didn't see you tried to order the bandit ones. My mistake. You can get regular ones from in that first link.

Yeah, Bandit4x4 bushings are the way to go, however they have been out of material to make them for 3 weeks and apparently it will be awhile longer before they can make them.

Just found the parts before seeing this response. and ordered them for the short term, so I can get my truck back on the road and aligned.

BTW 4x4parts has way high shipping rates, ($22 for UPS 3-Day for a 1 oz plasctic part), but if you call they can put it in a Priority Flat rate box for $8
