    Swinger 3-Way DU Bushing

    Does anyone know where to source one of these along with the mounting hardware? I noticed a slight knock when lifting the seat of my prophet. I assumed it was the pivot bearing but upon further inspection it's coming from the rear shock mount. The mounting hardware just fall out of the DU bushing when I unbolt the rear shock.

    Thanks -

    I emailed them a couple days ago but still waiting to hear something. I have zero experience with bushings on shocks so I'm unsure if they are specific to manufacturer or not (I suspect that they are). I didn't have any luck finding a phone number for Manitou after doing a quick google search.

    Regarding the mounting hardware; does that typically wear as well or is the idea for the DU bushing to wear and re-use the mounting hardware?

    I've had horrid CS from Manitou, but they are your source for these. Best I can say is keep hammering, you'll get somewhere eventually.

    Bushing wears, it's supposed to. The hardware goes away much more slowly.....

    After digging through multiple forums I found them. I'm updating this in the hopes that it may help someone in the future. Thanks for the replies mendon, I'm just ordering the bushing for now. Hopefully the hardware hasn't worn yet.

    Thanks man, I actually found and messaged him on ebay to ensure that they'd fit my shock. Got the bushings on order (2 sets) including shipping for $9.50
