Air ride levelling rods and grommets

I have an 05 40' Alpine and the air ride leveling system on the front end has two rods that are held on to "levers" with a rubber grommet. The grommets have broken in half from heat deterioration and the ride is miserable without the system working. Does anyone have a source for this particular grommet? I am not having any luck finding them.
Thanks in advance,

Meritor made the front end for alpine, call them, check their website, and go to ACA site and download the manual, so you have the description of the part when you call. Now with that said, they will not sell them to you, you will have to have Freightliner, or Detroit Diesel/Allison shop order them for you since they don't sell to the general public, I know, I tried to get the ball joints for mine, nope, wont sell to any private individual must be national account.

The height control valve is Haldex 90054007 and they do sell a generic arm with grommets that you have to cut to size. See http://www.haldex.com/Documents/hbsn...chure_1-10.pdf
When I replaced my valves I also used shoulder bolts to replace the push-on grommet fittings. No chance of those slipping off now. I bought my valves from Ryderfleetproducts.

IIWMI'd glue up some plastic gromets from plastic sheet or, if I was on the road & wanted a fast fix, I'd wire a stack of washers together that approximated the grommet profile.
