After a recommendation from Fotorat1 on another thread I bought some parts from TF Tuned. They are a suspension specialist.
The shock mounting hardware on my Whyte JW4 was in a shocking state, causing some frightening noises on bumpy trails. A local shop, The Bike Cabin in Chorley, found someone who would make me the parts but £60 sounded like a lot for such small parts. TF Tuned sent me the necessary parts within 2 days and the suspension feels like brand new. £36 for front and rear bottom shock mounts still isn't cheap but I'm well satisfied to be able to get exactly what I needed. These guys are just the type of specialist we need to keep our old bikes going.
The JW4 has a spherical bearing in the front suspension linkage. I got the PB10 bearing from a local bearing factor so I'm now ready for a good and significantly quieter ride :D

I’ve not used them “yet” but have only herd goods thing and it’s really nice to see a post about good service for a change.
