Default Rear sway bar bushings

I need to replace the bushings for my rear swaybar (NOT the links) but the bushings on the rear axle. I cannot find them anywhere (napa, carquest, rock auto, oreilly, autozone, ebay, etc) No-one lists them. I really don't want to go to the dealer besides the closest dealer for me is 60 miles.

I don't know if you can buy just the bushings separately. This is the only part in my manual that has bushings connecting to the rear sway bar. Not all PT's have a rear sway bar therefore this part is not as recognized I guess. I found this on Autozone's website.

I must have poor English skills. I said "NOT the links". I need the bushings where the swaybar attaches to the rear axle. That link you provide is for the link. I don't need that part, I need the bushing on the rear axle.

Whoops, somehow I totally overlooked those few words. I apologize. The dealer may be the only option for this. You can have them ship it to you instead of driving all that way for them.

I did a quick search and I think this might be what you are looking for.

A couple of things to try. There are some online dodge/chrysler parts dealers that might be able to help. Secondly, measure the approximate diameter of the rear bar, less rust, with a caliper or something. If you have the remains of the bushing off, take a picture and post it. If I recall correctly, the rear bushings may have a flat side to mount to the plate on the axle bar.

Somebody might have a spare set on a shelf some where. I ended up with a spare set, but for a big diameter aftermarket set that have too large an inside diameter than the OEM size. If used on an OEM bar, the bar would rattle around inside, and be just as bad. But someone who replaced an OEM bar with an upgrade might have a good used set. I installed mine on a base model with no rear bar to begin with.

Try these. They were both in the Autozone site. In english, they are "NOT" for the links.
