It looks like they are still available from PST for your '69;

I checked these out. About $99 for the bushings and about another $200 for their hardware. Stainless is all they offer.

That's pretty expensive for some bolts.
I bet that there is a cheaper alternative.

I also went with the energy suspension poly body mounts. I love them! What a big difference compared to my old worn out '68 mounts.

Re: Polly vs rubber

I went to the energy suspension poly body mounts about 4 years ago when I swapped my frame. I even added the "missing" body mount 1/2 way down the rocker panel. I didn't notice any measurable difference. I've had the poly control arm bushings front and rear for 19 years, never any issues or noise. I would go poly again.

Re: Polly vs rubber

I recently changed all the control arm bushings front and back with Energy Suspension poly bushings along with Bilstein shocks, and it was a huge improvement. I noticed a little more road feel, but was expecting that. The ride and handling was greatly improved.

I have not changed out the body bushings yet, they will have to wait. I suspect the rubber body bushings are giving me enough road vibration isolation that the ride does not feel harsh.
