Where to get bushings? L300

I think it's some kind of safety catch, to limit drivetrain movement in the event of a rear-end crash, stopping the engine crashing through the radiator and into the back of your legs.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

I just got a fat box of rubber $240 CAD later! The package was ordered thru Amayama 01 June and arrived at my door 12 June. I paid for the 14 day shipping and the pack was only sent from Japan on 08 June.

I'm pretty sure that is UNUSUALLY quick and it's kind of a funny introduction to being so apprehensive about 37 day shipping times and all that, but indeed worst case ...

I've ordered a couple times from Amayama shipping to Vancouver and have been very impressed with their shipping speed. Albeit the fact that sometimes they don't have the items on hand even though you can "add them to cart"

They are my go to for smaller parts.

MB672091 x2 [Front Sway Bar Bushings]
MB598097 x2 [Front Sway Bar Link Kit (bolt, nut, washers, bushings x2)]


Are these part numbers also correct for the upper bushings for the sway bar hanger (I'm sure there's a better name for this, but I don't know it), or just for the end links? Partsouq lists the hanger link kit as MB598327, but I can't for the life of me figure out if they're the same as the end link bushings. They look like they should be, but hard to tell since they're so dead.

Any help is appreciated!

Sealica how has the bushing replacement gone? Also did you (or anyone) ever find a parts number or replacement for the front leaf spring bushing?
