Where to find STOCK Ford rubber bushings

I want to move my v6 back to stock suspension setup. This requires I remove my poly bushings from the front control arms and for the life of me I can't find anywhere to buy oem bushings (no, "go the dealer" answers please). Anyone have an idea? I am also open to ideas about another type of bushing that maintains noise absorption, cause I no longer can keep greasing my poly's to avoid the squeaking that comes with them. On that note anyone in OH want to come and swap there stock parts with my aftermarket setup?

Bought some at a local NAPA. about 2 years ago. I couldn't find them any where else. They had to order them.

Check the trash can (just kidding). But for real, they are crapy and that's why many people have upgraded it. You have your reasons to downgrade, other than finding a totaled car in the junk yard, I have no idea.

Just curious, how often do you have to keep greasing the bushings?

its not downgrading, its about driveability. everyone seems to think stock parts are crap. thing is unless you race, autocross, drag, the fact is you really don't need to change out parts unless its about show and go. My stang is a daily driver so sometimes its a pain to continue to maintenance all my aftermarket parts.

I have had them on for about 18,000 miles. I usually re-grease them every 8,000. I noticed after I changed rims and tires the last time the squeaking subsided a lot.
