Replacement door hinge bushings

Hey guys (bear with me, this is my first post...), I've been searching around the web trying to find any info I can on the small bushings that go on the inside of both the lower and upper/windshield door hinges. I bought a complete set of stainless door hinges awhile back and painstakingly prepped/painted them to match my Jeep. The bushings in my old hinges are falling apart.
I thought about putting in a couple teflon washers on each hinge, but I do not think these will help with properly seating the pin in the hinge (though they would help with keeping the hinges from making metal to metal contact and subsequently chipping away paint).
I found a guy on eBay who sells delrin replacements for $60 + shipping and I just can't justify paying over $70 bucks for four small bushings... He is my last resort if I can't find any other method of finding replacements.
I remember reading a thread on here where a guy bought replacements at the dealership. Does anyone have the part number for these?

I just find it impossible to believe that some company somewhere does not make replacement door bushings for Jeep Wranglers at a reasonable price . If you guys can help me out or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Door Hinge Bushings

Hello,

I am the guy selling these bushings on eBay. What would you consider a fair price to be for these considering they are low-volume, custom-manufactured components when made by someone like me? We may be able to come to a mutually agreeable price on this forum if I am not constrained with eBay and Paypal fees. They really take a huge bite out of a sale.

Best regards,
-Brian

Jeep Door Bushings

I can make them for anyone that needs them. Please e-mail me at the address below if you are interested in purchasing them. One thing I have learned in making these is that they do not fit certain aftermarket hinges because of the smaller ID in the body-half. So it is important to make me aware of the type of hinges you have if you want them to fit. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
