The bushings on the front and rear control arms (rods?) of my 2000 Beaver Patriot Thunder are worn out. I know that bushings can be replaced if the rod is Ok and I'm looking for a shop in Houston or San Antonio that could do the work. The rear bushings all use a 1-1/8 in bolt which is somewhat non-standard but I would think that wouldn't bother a shop that knew that business. The front bushings take a 7/8 inch bolt.

I'd be willing to ship the rods to someone who can fix them if I can't find anyone nearby. Denver Spring has been suggested as a potential source.

I'd greatly appreciate any assistance.
