Help - Sway Bar End Links with Pics

I noticed my passenger side sway bar link bottom bushing is pretty bad (see pic 2). Problem is that the jeep has a lift which appears to be a skyjacker lift (although its prob a mixture os parts from different manufacturers) and I cant determine how to order bushings for these links? Can anyone tell me who makes these sway bar links just by looking at them in case I cant just buy the bushings. Im really having troubles finding these types of sway bar links and an even harder time just trying to get the bushings. Dont want to spend a ton on new links and was hoping to just replace the worn bushing only.

Also, I noticed the PO used some washers as spacers (see pictures) on the drivers side links. Any reason that you can think of for doing this and is there a "better" fix?

I believe those bushings are similar to the ones you will find in shocks. You should be able to pick some up from your local auto store

You may pop one out to make sure. Then just take it to the auto store with you and compare
