87 YJ Wiper Linkage Bushings???????

I need a little help with finding replacement bushings for my wiper linkage. My wipers have a lot of play, seem to go too far to the passenger side and then hang up there. I have already replaced the motor and it's good and strong. I'm thinking that the bushings must be worn out. I have searched around and found a HELP kit at AutoBlown, I mean Autozone, but it didn't have the lower bushings for the motor and driver's side. These are the ones that go on the bottom ball and the top ball takes the caps. The cap style bushing is all I can find. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Wow,

Thanks for that wonderful insight, I would have never thought to check with the actual manufacturer of the vehicle. Maybe you could just start ignoring all the silly people that ask silly questions. Hey, maybe some people ask a question such as I did and actually start a discussion about the subject in question. Maybe it's just me, crazy I am!!

This should get interesting...



My linkage came off in a bad rain storm. Im still trying to figure out how to get it back on. I have a string tied to each wiper blade and they seemed to work ok for a short time.


I would take a look at Qudratech. They seem to carry just about everything one could need for a Jeep.

Hope this helps.
