Default Watts Linkage question

So like alot of people, I have a clunking coming for the rear of my 2003 PT. I got under the back end and looked around a bit. I grabbed the link bar on the Driver side and I noticed it was loose, but more so from where it attaches to the bellcrank. The dealer says I need to replace the entire link. Anyone else know if I need the whole link?

Check the ends of the watts link... examine the bushings... if you find nothing but crumbs where there used to be cheap-a$$ cheapsler bushings... all ya need are some new bushings.

I am surprised your stealer only wants to replace the link. Mine would try to replace the entire rear axle.
