Where to find shocks/shock bushings?

Hi all,

I have an Ice Bear 3 wheeler that I’m having an issue with.

The seat area, which is suspended by the two rear shocks, has started to lean left and right heavily. While riding it will basically fall over to the left and stay there, making it really difficult to keep under control.

I suspect that the culprit is the shock absorber bushings. I pulled off one shock to check it out, and these bushings have pretty much been obliterated.

My question is where to purchase these bushings. I’ve searched all over the place online. The local auto parts store doesn’t have anything that would work either. I even contacted Ice Bear directly and they told me that i needed to contact one of their dealers. Great customer service, right?

Anyways, I contacted a dealer, and they told me that bushings weren’t sold independently, that I would need to buy the complete shock.

Is this true? If not, where on earth do you find these bushings? Trying to save all the money i can, there’s nothing wrong with these shocks and I really don’t want to buy new ones.

Sorry this post was so long, thanks in advance!

Try looking on eBay for bushings.

Just a heads up, this forum is much more focused on old pedal mopeds like the Puchs and Motobecanes made in the 70's-80's. Your icebear is a scooter, so people here aren't versed in them (especially since Icebear is Chinese-made and most people here are very opposed to Chinese motorized vehicles due to poor quality and customer service) and some of the older crowd will just heckle you for posting here about a scooter.

That being said if you take measurements of the bushings with a dial caliper there's no reason you wouldn't be able to find something that would fit online

Local NAPA store might help.

Why would you promote polluting our precious water supply ? :(
