Default Body and Bed bushings for a D21 in El Salvador

Hello Nissan Friends,

I live in El Salvador and own (gifted) a D21, 1997 pickup. Strictly for farming.

The poor truck has been abused, and requires a complete makeover in the mechanical aspects. It is a 4WD, Diesel TD27, The truck is down to the bare chassis (cracks galore), the tranny and transfer case are ok, so no worries there.

Engine, complete rebuild , all parts available here.
Here labor is cost effective as I have a shop, but I need some resources for Body and Bed bushings. Eventually other items will pop up, but we'll go along as we do.

I tend to favor polyurethane, but no one offers a kit for this truck specifically.
Has anyone used generic bushings (prothane, energy suspension, etc.)
and in what dimensions. Hard or soft? Please, opinions and sources.


Really appreciate the kind help.

Regards, Alberto

Thank you for the kind advice, but where do I find the bushes? Here, none are to be found.

great question Alberto, if you find a source please let us know. There was a post a while back where someone was looking for them (as was I), but I don’t think a source has been found yet

Well, after reading, I checked the link and it appears pretty good, and the price is a steal!

Checked RockAuto dot com? I think they will ship internationally.

Rock auto does not stock said items. Shipping is not an issue as I have a freight forwarder in Miami. Thank you for the tip.

I found these. Website says they work but this isn't a job I've done (but been thinking about doing), so I can't confirm.

Really? Looking under the "Steering" and "Suspension" categories for bushings, etc.
