Default HELP!! The bushings on the shifter broke

I replaced the ones on the transmission years ago and carefully put the shifter bushings in a safe place until needed Well I need and I can't find them I tried to call Booger Bushings and they are in Houston and with all the weather I don't think they are working according to the message on the phone. Is there a quic fix or another source for these. Aside from a motorcycle the PT is my wife and I's only car and we need to get this fixed. DESPERATE! Thanks

You MIGHT find bushings at your local autozone, advance or o'reilly. I don't know but I'd at least call them. Maybe someone here has the doorman bushing number you need.

I tried all Autozone and they didn't have any I'll try O'Riley. Amazon May have them according to the comments. I did a quick fix with fuel hose, washer and a medium c-clip. Sloppy but stays on until I get the correct parts. I was surprised it works as it was so easy to MacGuyver together. Good thing it went out in April instead of July. I live in Phoenix Metro!

This MAY work if I can get confirmation. Very little on the O'Riley web page

I was in a similar emergency situation to get shifter bushings and they had a kit available at NAPA. They were pretty much like the stock bushings.

That's the kit in the above post.

i meant to add that the kid at the counter won't know these are there, you should physically check yourself in the "help" isle
