    Hey,

    Does anyone know where I can purchase replacement bushings for the extension arms for the convertible top for a 2g spyder?

    These are discontinued from mitsu, and mine are so destroyed that its hard to get a set measured to make a new set. Does anyone have any dimensions that we could get a machine shop to recreate?

    Thanks,

    Garret.

    Could you take a picture of the specific bushings you are talking about?

    I dont have the arms off at the moment, but this ebay listing shows the arms, and the four bushings in question.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/96-99-Mitsubishi-Eclipse-Convertible-Top-Frame-Rear-Extension-Arms-LH-and-RH/283519454553?fits=Model:Eclipse&hash=item4203138d59:g:djYAAOSwaEZdB7Lf#viTabs_0

    One of the arms moves around so much that it makes a very loud bang as it hits against the top frame when I hit a bump. Would love to replace those bushings and tighten everything back up. That level of play in the arms will likely start wearing out the extension arm soon as well.

    Gotcha you might have luck with getting a used set from stevie Miller but if OEM is discontinued itll be hard to get someone to make something for such a small market. (2g spyder owners)

    Good luck man

    That's too bad to hear. My buddy might be needing those bushings as well.

    If anyone has a set similar to the ones in the image here, let me know.

    Also, if anyone has a decent set and would be willing to take measurements and post them I would love to have a set recreated.

    Thanks,
