Rear wiper & suspension issue

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and was told I should check in. I do have a couple of questions that maybe somebody here could help with. I have a 2002 Wrangler X, I need to replace my rear wiper motor assembly, the vinyl gears are stripped. Is there an aftermarket one available that somebody knows about or do I need to go to the dealer? Also I get weird sway Left & Right when @ freeway speed when I let off the throttle and then accelerate again. I was thinking that maybe the rear sway bar bushings are bad. Thanks.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to find any aftermarket wiper motors when I thought I needed to replace mine. Fortunately I took it apart and squirted a little WD40 and it decided to start working again as the factory replacement is really expensive. And you'll never find one in a boneyard as you can probably guess hardtops are like gold.

Yea, I took it apart and took a look to see if there was something I could do but I found that the gears were vinyl and I guess from pushing the snow off the back window the teeth all sheared off and the gears are all almost smooth.
