    New question here. 1999 DBR XR-4 Suspension/Frame Bushings?

    I'm looking for parts for a frame... specifically the bushings for the rear suspension links on a 1999 DBR XR-4... any ideas if these are still made at all? and if so, where to get them? I was thinking of attempting to call diamondback but I don't know if they'd even have a source for them... Anyone?

    YOu can buy bearings from an LBS; they have access to companies like QBP, Hawley, J&B; who have bearings in there catalogs.. press out old ones and measure them, you should be able to find a new set. Measure OD IN and thickness And take the old ones in to them to make double sure...

    That frame uses bushings not bearings......

    You can call Diamondback, but don't get your hopes up as last time i looked for replacements for mine(8 years ago) they were clueless & helpless. If you really need to rebuild it i would look locally at some industrial supply houses & see if they can get you a generic replacement. Yes,take the bushings with you
    SPD pedals are an absolute menace to the well-being of the world, and ought be banned immediately.

    This did nothing but cause confusion when I emailed to my local bearing shop, but I will attach it anyway.

    Your best bet is to take the bushings in and let them get as close as they can.

    Let me know if you find any I need them for my 2000 x link!.
