Any know if any of the bushes on the front suspension/steering of a 412 are common with any other models? Thank you.

I'll give them a call. I just want dimensions or unused examples so I can see about getting some urethane ones made to order.

Have you read the many musings of Ray Greenwood over on the Samba regarding type 4 suspension. Well worth doing so before you do something that may accelerate wear elsewhere in the suspension.
