Colorado Steering Rack Bushes

Hi
When it was MOT time the bushes on my steering rack looked like they were
getting a bit soft and are in need of replacing.
Some time ago I seem to recollect that somebody knew where to get the bushes
from.
I when to Toyota they said they don't come separate from the rack so would
have had to by a full rack. The only one they did separate was the clamp
bush. Looking at them they only look like split bushes that are fitted to
shockers so they should be quite cheap.
Is there anyone who can shed some light on this for me.
Thanks
John Nelson

You could try Milner Offroad, they do some bush kits that might include steering bushes.
Cheers,

Thanks all for the quick replies
I have decided to go with the link Roman sent. http://tinyurl.com/ywbafj
Strange link for a Barnsley (Yorkshire) shop, but looks interesting.
I have also just had my half shafts replaced Freebie from Toyota. Service
manager was not even sure why they were being changed as in the last 15yrs
working for Toyota he has not had any related problems.
Good deal for us owners. Only downside was I had a Yaris for the week.
You are now wondering !!a week!! I asked them to replace the handbrake shoes
and retaining springs while it was stripped, and they cocked up with the
ordering.
Next project new springs and shockers with 2" (ish) lift as at the moment I
don't seem to have a lot of axle articulation and the suspension is hard.
