Front control arm AXLE bushing

Replacing my front control arms, the bushings are looking bad and has crazy shake when crossing RR tracks or washboard (like come to a stop to stop the shake, kind of shake). Where do I find the bushings that go into the top axle mounts? the control arm comes with the back bushing in it, but where to find the bushing that goes in the axle? also any tips on removing them? I have not yet tried but hear they can be a pain. 95 jeep Grand Cherokee, no lift. Thanks guys.

You should be able to get the bushings from any local parts store. You want the upper control arm axle-side bushing. I always used a big hammer (3lb sledge) to drive them out. Throw the new one in the freezer a couple hours before you install it and it should slide in pretty easy.
