Default Local source for shock seals

I am looking for a source of 4" seals around Grand Rapids. Within a hour of 49333 would be fine also.

I am building a internal floating piston shock (not suspension) with a 4" ID. The 3 seals on the internal floating piston will need a "backup" scraper on the oil side, a main "multiple ribbed" seal, and a air scraper on the nitrogen side.

These seals will need to work within a range of -30 to 250 degrees F. The fluid is engine oil and the compression side is nitrogen.

I will need a total of 8 oil scraper seals, 8 "multiple ribbed"main seals, and 8 nitrogen seals. I am thinking poly for all but will gladly take advise. I will also buy extra's if they are in stock.

Once I have the seals I will build the floating piston to match them.

If need be I will order overseas. But, if at all possible I would prefer to buy this locally. So, if you guys know of any or are any yourself the information would be great.

Thanks for reading.

Yes, Middleville is around 20-40 minutes South East of GR depending on what part.
