Lightbulb Suggestions and help welcome!

Totally new here and need help with two things.
1. My 2 door 2007 JK needs new door hinge bushings since the moron who had my jeep before me decided to destroy them. Its a pain in the butt to take off my doors so I've been looking for replacement parts. I've been looking and find it hard to believe its going to be $25 for one bushing. I know it'll be expensive, but does anyone have a site they can suggest where i might find them at a more decent price?

2. Spaced and left my top off in the rain (first time in over a year) and now my horn isnt working and my airbag warning light is on. I'm not entirely sure if it's related, but if it is anyone have any ideas on what I can do to fix it?

Thank you kindly.
Luna (my jeep) and I greatly appreciate any help we can get.

The clock spring is likely bad if the horn and the air bag light is on. I don't know of anywhere but the dealership to get the clock spring. It is a easy repair. The only special tool you need is a steering wheel/balance puller.

1.) Hit a scrap yard and ask to pull bushings off another Jeep in stock? Probably $5 from a scrap yard. Or if you have alot of body repair places in your area, keep an eye out for a side impact Jeep getting new panels or written off. If you ask nicely they may let you pull them before the panel/Jeep gets sent to the yard.

2.) Unfortunately, sounds like the clock spring got wet. If you're the original owner, your 5year warranty should still be active? Pulling the steering wheel is generally not a great DIY project; might be worth having the dealership (warranty) or a shop change it for you.
