Sway Bar Bushing Search

I have a 1975 Agosy 20' MH with a P30 Chassis. Looking for replacement of the sway bar bushings. The sway bar diameter is 1 3/4 roughly. O'reilly's and Advance Auto has no access. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Frame bushing, or control arm?
Napa has them, I have bought them and put them on both bread trucks and MoHos.

I have a 77 argosy and get most of the engine and chassis parts from my local chev dealer, since it is a chev chassis and power train.They have the serial no. on there computer so I get the correct parts most of the time. One exception so far was the fan clutch. They gave me a light duty one instead of a heavy duty one and that was because the light one was on the engine and I brought it in to them.

There's after market polyurethane bushing available and have them on my P30 chasis airstream and really made the sway bars much much tighter, less roll. Unfortuately I can't remember who made them. I found them with a google search originally.

IPM, If you come across the name let me know. All sources dried up. No GM dealer help, Energy Systems does not seem to want to return my calls or emails for some reason. I learn from GM these bars where an option called HD (Heavy Duty) for their motorhome chassis. I have a 1 1/2" sway bar on the front and 1 3/4" on the rear. The brackets that hold the sway bar and bushing in place are 1 1/2" wide, bolt centers 3 1/4",3" tall and 2" for bushing to slide in bracket.

Here's mine, maybe not 1 1/2":

Performance parts and accessories


How about use the undersized 1 3/8 as is, they split, or drill them out to fit?

Talking to IPD. The back bushings shows part number of IPD 150 404. I also located a company that makes these bushings to order. Thank you

FYI to everyone: It looks like Roadmaster has the sizes I needed. They are the only company I ran across that matches the large bracket size I have. They also have the large diameter sway bar sizes. According to the GM dealership I visited these sway bars where an option and show in my manual called HD (heavy duty)Thank you all for all your help.
