Default Need Help Finding HPI Pro 4 Replacement Part

I just finished building my HPI Pro 4 kit that I have had sitting in the garage partly assembled for about 5 years. Anyways, I made it almost to the end of the build before I found out I was missing two parts. I must have thrown them out on accident back when I partly assembled the kit.

Trouble is I can't find the part I need in stock anywhere. I have checked every RC replacement part site I can find on google or already knew about with no luck. Hoping this forum can point me in the right direction.

The part I need is 73511 (2) and I need one for front and rear. I wouldn't mind an after market piece, but I haven't found any of those either.

Circled in red is the piece I need.

Thanks very much! I might have to grab the one in stock, but I need two unfortunately. Shipping to the US is also 4 times the cost of the part I guess I should have mentioned I am in the US.

Found some more on Australian sites and they make these looks like a bargain. Paying 40-50 USD for 2 pieces that are worth under a dollar is

Sadly the sway bar hold down is part of the gear box sprue which is nearly impossible to find.

I'd keep posting on rctech hoping some Pro4 owners have extras laying around. I MIGHT have one laying around in one of my parts bins, but unlikely. When i get back from my road trip i'll look.

You may also want to look at engineering something on your own in the meantime.

Thanks, I would greatly appreciate it and make it worth your while. I posted a WTB thread.

I have an old Pro 4 as well, and have found everything I need at Stormer. Sadly, what you need is on order...

No problem! I appreciate you finding someone that had at least one in stock!

Yeah that seems to be the case on all the bigger sites. They say the part is on order, but I highly doubt they will be getting more with it discontinued and all.
