Chassis Parts Help

I have a 1999 Monaco Diplomat with the R-2900 Roadmaster chassis. Control arm and panhard bushings are shot. The rear left is totally gone, letting the axle move forward on that side and ruining a new tire. Is Monaco parts division the only place I'll be able to get these parts? Can I buy just the bushings or will I have to buy the whole control arms? I live in a smaller town without an RV repair center and its too bad to move it but Im working with a really good local shop that does big truck repair. I have no doubt they can do the job right but I don't want to pay a premium for the parts.
Thank you in advance for any help and Im glad I found this group.

Source Manufacturing is one of the vendors on IRV2, they may be able to help. There is a drop down under Vendors at the top of the page. Good luck

Atro bushings are superior to the original bushings and should be available for your coach. Atro will not deal direct.

You can call the folks at Ruppparts.com for these bushings.

When you receive the new bushings from Monaco, check what type of bushing they are supplying. if they are a two piece bushing, I would return them for credit. Monaco used some real junk bushings in some of the '90s era coaches which caused a lot of problems. Aftermarket manufacturers like Atro offer a one piece polyurethane bushing with inner and outer steel sleeves, which is a far superior bushing. Although I am not familiar with the bushings that Source supply, I believe their bushing is somewhat similar in design to the Atro bushing. I don't know who Source uses for a bushing supplier.

Replacing the trailing arm and pan hard bushings is a bear of a job. The cost of the bushings is just a very, very small part of the entire project. Don't cheap out on the bushings.

Too bad you can't wait on the poly bushings.
This would be the last time you would ever have to do this job.
Anyway, good luck, I'm sure your truck shop with a 100ton press will have no problem changing those out.
I do these all the time on the Hendrickson suspended army trucks, just a little heavy.
