Default Leaf spring bushing for GV.

Question: Can anyone tell me where in the UK I can get the rubber bushing at each end of the rear leaf springs? My GV has done 110,000 miles and the front bushing on the off-side (driver's side UK) has started to rattle badly over bumps, and it's driving me nuts. As the MOT is due shortly, this is also getting urgent. Thanks in anticipation....

Thanks for that Scotsman4th. The first one supplier gives no indication as to their address and number although they are obviously a business. I never put money on the internet due to all the hacking and scamming. But the second one gives full address etc. I can call them and pay by debit card, so this is the one for me. It is almost impossible to hack into a physical phone line without being seen, unlike any wireless system.


Thanks again, Leedsman.

Well well, I've learned a few lessons here. The rattling noise was NOT originating from the rear of the car, even though I was positive it was. The rattling was coming from a broken front coil road spring, and somehow getting the noise to seem to be coming from the rear, probably by being conducted down the door sill box-section just under the doors.
A further problem noise-wise came about after I had the spring changed. (I would not do this job myself, too dangerous). A new noise appeared, a rubbery rubbing noise on turning the steering wheel, which I fixed by brushing some lithium grease onto the bright steel shaft in the middle of the coil.
We live and learn...
