Monaco Windsor read bushings

Hello friends. First major trip and lost rear bushings on I-84. We hit a particularly bad pothole and the coach started steering badly after. Had to constantly correct to steer. Freightliner Hartford is trying to source the bushings and get us back on the road, but they are working hard to find out. Do any of you have a suggestion on a source. Thanks in advance.

I haven't replaced any of my bushings but some on here have and they have mentioned ATRO bushings and Source Engineering

https://www.atrobushing.com/

Source Engineering might be easier since they were former Monaco
employees.

Have them examine the welds back there too, some have had cracks and broken welds.

Thank you for the info. The shop was able to find the bushings. I think from a local suspend shop. I will post that info when I talk to them in the morning. We are still having to wait shipping and installation time.

I think the Astrobushing may be the better option but sometimes hard to find.

If you are broke down any alternate source is better then none.
