Anyone make these?

MT202944 and MA103843  

Just wanna see if any interest for these l can make a bunch of both. Very precisely machined to oem specs out of delrin brass or aluminum
whatever material you think would be better? Let me know if you guys are interested. I would make a bunch and sell them as a kit! Maybe even start group buy if enough interest!

Thank you

I was able to order all of the bushings needed in the FSM from amayama.com. I still have them new in their original packaging in case you need any measurements. I would be interested in a complete set in delrin as well. Thanks

Well gentlemen after looking at the design and starting to rebuild my own linkage w new stock bushings  l am realizing that there is a reason why they use almost rubber like material for the ball and grooved linkage bushings so they can get pressed in and spring back some.Delrin is just not soft enough for that task.This would be ideal project for someone that does swaybar bushings  and such to make a mold and pour in some kinda softer material and let it set to this shape. Material of this sort is hard to machine as it is just to soft and bounces around during cutting.Perhaps silicone of some sort? I guess l had a good thought!  I was able to buy all the bushings from Mitsubishi dealer however.

I just purchased some from Mitsubishi dealer or amayama as gentlemen above stated in his post. You need 4 yellow and 2 of the Burgundy/Brown balls pictured  they are spongy and press in nice. What a difference like a new car again . There wasn't any in my linkage they simply disintegrated into dust lol . Part numbers for you below! They where about $5.75 a piece.Yes gnt should make them but need people to step in and show interest so they can make something out of it it may not be worth doing the work for just a few people.
