Where is a good place to buy new bushings?

Anyplace that sell golf car parts,the bushings are the same as the rear ones that go in the leaf springs.You also have a metal tube in the middle that usually rusts and needs to be replaced to.If its not just put in new bushings,they should be around 10 bucks for the set.

According to the cc '01 manual i have those bushings are poly and not rubber.
That's not to say that the manual is just generalizing and cc used both idk.just to throw that out there and yeah about ten bucks will get you a front set.

Well..... Got a better look at the cart this morning. Looks like whoever he bought it from, It's missing 6 of the 8 bushings in the suspension. The 2 in front and 4 in the back. I am picking up the parts this morning and will probably install them tomorrow. I will start there. Hopefully it's the culprit on the front end.

It was the front end bushings!

I am going to go ahead and replace the rears as well.

Thank you all for the help!
