Lower radiator grommet size

It is impossible to find a distributor for the lower radiator grommets for a 96 ZJ (4.0 liter) part # J0687550 with any in stock. I'm replacing the radiator this weekend and am looking for a comparable replacement grommet. Does anyone know the diameter hole in the frame that the lower grommet sits in? I'm thinking that the grommets from the upper end of front shock absorbers may be close to the size. I was hoping to have a couple of grommets on hand that may work before I pull the radiator. Any help would be appreciated!

As I suspected my grommets were shot. I had to manufacture a couple using leftover grommets from the top of a shock absorber. I put a bolt/nut through the grommet and put it in a drill press than used a utility knife to shape the grommet. The hole in the frame that the grommet fits into is 3/4 inch diameter. The center hole is 7/16 inch diameter and the grommets top is about 3/8 inches thick. I hope this helps someone out.
