Red face Poly Bushes for MX5 build

I've had a look today for some poly bushes to replace my rubber ones on the rear top uprights for a MK1 MX5 build.
Do you think I can find them separately... no.
I don't want to buy a complete set for the rear as most company's advertise as I only want them for the uprights.
Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Flo-Flex do them on ebay. I had them sell me a pair for 10 but I did have to message them and ask specifically.

Dear flo-flex,

Hi,

I need 2 bushes for the rear uprights of my Haynes Roadster.

Can you do me a listing for just these 2 bushes? They are MK1 MX5 Rear, Upper, Outer bushes. They are at the top left of this image.

Would someone be willing to order and ship me a set of these as well. I've contacted them numerous times, with no response. I don't know what the deal is, other than that I live in the US, but according to ebay they ship international. Shoot me a PM if you can help me out.
