Default I need some plastic tube... where can I find it?

Hey all

I scored the yeah racing suspension kit for $15 with a few of the plastic bushes missing so I'm trying to find some plastic tubing so I can make some to fit but I'm having trouble finding even one place that sells plastic tube :/

Measurements are 4mm OD and 3mm ID
5/32 won't work as that is 3.9mm and I end up with slop in the arms

If you look at this pic you'll see the clear plastic bushes in the arms


Any ideas on what I can do here

Thanks


EDIT: After too long of searching I finally found the parts, so I'm posting for future searchers

MCmaster carr...

They have a wide selection of nearly anything you can imagine. If you use the searchfunction there, you will easily find what you may need in a variety of measurements and materials.

Good luck!

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm thinking that fuel tube might be a bit squishy tho? Unless theres a different grade? Maybe, hope so hehe

As i said, with mcmaster you can find anything, nylon, ABS, steel, you name it. I wouldn't use fuel tubing as it would allow the arms to "wonder" while on the hinge pins.
