Trouble finding new body mount sleeves.

I'm having trouble finding the steel sleeves that fit inside the body mounts on my 93 wrangler. I pitched 2 of them that were so badly rusted they couldn't be used again. I figured the new Daystar 1" kit would include them as it stated "All steel hardware included", but that wasn't the case.

I've read just about every thread I can find on the internet and can't seem to find a source. Surely I'm not the only YJ owner that's still having this problem, but all the threads I've found are 2-3 years old.

Any advice on an safe and cost effective way to make my own or a source to buy them new would be great.

I made my own using black gas pipe and large washers.

Me too. I have a thread I started on this very topic. I have some pictures in it. I'm mobile right now. You should be able to find it under my profile if you want to see the pictures.

NOTE: Hindsight is 20/20. If I had it to do over I just would have went with a Procomp 1" body lift. I understand that it does come with EVERYTHING. Probably going to go with it sometime in the near future.
