When mine leaked I just took the hose into Napa and had them find the right size o-ring. Or you can just buy a package of mixed sizes and match it up when you take off the hose.

Dude they're just rubber bushings, and Moog and Mopar are both reliable brands. Just pick one and go with it. If you were asking about rubber vs poly bushings then people would have an opinion.

You can have your coolant tested for exhaust gas, that would let you know if it's a head gasket or not. The cap should release pressure over 18 psi, try a new cap and see if that helps.
