Default Teflon Bushes - Where to get them in Delhi

I was told by a member during the noida meet that fitting teflon bushes will take care of the frequent rubber bush crack issue in the Safari.
He told me that a teflon sheet has to be purchased, and cut to size on a lathe.
I am wondering if anybody has gotten this done.
How much is the cost (total cost of sheet, labor and fitting).
any good workshops which do this job?

Thanks Chirag, I would also need a competent workshop to fit these, and also see if the size matches!

Where? in the suspension control arms?

Teflon rod can also be purchased and its much easier to machine compared to sheet. Check electrical shops (its used for insulation as well)

Although the teflon bush will last much longer, it will not give any dampening effect.

A primary function of rubber bushes is also to dampen.

IMO, the ideal solution to you problem would be to get good quality synthetic rubber bushes manufactured.

i will not dare play with machined parts on top of factory made recommended specs suspension.

How ever what Chiragji posted can be used.
