Big alternator changing bushings

I had this rebuilt alternator installed over 10 years ago. No idea of the brand or specs. The bushings are shot-belt is slipping. Can I use standard bushings to replace?...Am I better off just getting another alternator?

 

Thanks in advance

Looks like a Bosch alternator with internal regulator. I just bought one similar (65 amp AL44X) for my car. You'll likely need two thin bushings and two thick ones. You can get either stock or polyurethane bushings at Bavarian Auto and other suppliers for $20 or less total. --Fred

Definitely get the urethane bushings--including the lower one.  I was replacing the OEM rubber bushings about every 4-5 years.They'd turn into black goo, cause the alternator to get cocked in relation to the other belt pulleys and thus cause the belt to squeal.  Then I stumbled on the urethane ones.  I installed 'em in both my '02s back in the 80s and they're still on the cars.
