front link bar bushing question
 
Hello all :wavey: new to the forum, iv been working on my son in-laws jeep a 97 wrangler Sahara edition with a 4 inch lift, 33 inch ties 4.0l, son in-law is a good guy an is based in camp lejeune NC with the marines. he has a few problems with his ride an i offered to help with the jeep to keep cost down for him. so with inspection he needs a transmission mount, rear universal joints. rear brake self adjuster cable, needs rear shocks but wow they are high,

OK so now for the question, iv posted a couple of pics below for you to see what i have been searching for, from what i can tell its is the sway bar link bushing that is missing on the front passenger side, the lower bushing. now can this be bought for just the lower bushing or do i have to buy the whole arm ? and where is the best place to buy this part from. I'm in the upstate of SC near spartanburg. i had to go to 3 different parts houses this morning to get a u joint, trans- mount, and the brake adjuster cable. the people at these 3 places couldn't help me or didn't want to help me find the right name for the part or try to locate one for me. are jeep parts always this hard to find. lol. i am a ford man at heart but I'm sure you all understand what its like to help a younger person get started.
thanks for any help you can give me. point me in the right direction or whatever. johnny/jj

Lower Swaybar link bushing is the name. Looks as if you need the hardware also/ or do you have the bolt and nut for it?
What brand is the lift? Looks to be a Rough country maybe from the pic's you posted. If you know the brand lift/swaybar maker, you can order them from the company.

I'll take a look out in the garage to see if I have some laying around. If I do it's yours. "military takes care of their own". ;)

Welcome to the forum.

thanks for the reply. i think its a pro comp- lift kit.
an yes i do need the hardware but im sure i can come up with the bolt an washer's. the main thing i need is the bushing. if i can find them. i went to roughcountry.com. will keep looking,
and yes military takes care of their own. its the least i can do, for what these guys go through.
thanks again

Not hard to find - parts house "HELP" line - shock bushings.

I've used bushing out of shock absorbers - just press them out of the shock.
You might have to whittle them down slightly, but I think they are a direct fit.
