    I bought mine locally at a truck spring shop, they were about 75 cents a piece. I roughed up the bottom of them a bit with some sandpaper and wiped them with alcohol and used a dab of silicon caulk to help hold them in (it doesn't take much caulk, or you will have a big mess... don't ask how I know :blush: ). It's worked good so far.
