Lower Sway Bar Link Bushing Please Help

So I went wheeling over the weekend with a friend and we both experienced the same issue. When we stopped for a break we noticed that our DIY (per the thread on here somewhere) sway bar links, one of them had come loose and. Hardware gone of course, but mine the bushing itself and everything was missing. I have borrowed another picture on here because it looks just like mine.

My question is where can I find the bushing without having to by a whole freakin kit. I would rather just spend a couple bucks right now to fix this, instead of shelling out more money for new ones.

Thanks in advance

You can probably find a replacement poly bushing through quadratec or another online retailer. It appears you have the same issue as my lj does. There is simply not enough clearance between the mounting bracket/link and the drag link. I eventually just cut mine off after a steering upgrade and I am going to reweld new brackets when I my anti rock. My springs have a stiff enough rate that it isn't sloppy when driving so no worries there, but if yours are not, then you will probably want to look into raising the axle side lower mounting brackets or you will keep popping off bushings. I went through three before I figured it wasn't worth the pita to keep replacing them.
