Replacement bushings for stock track bar

Trying to fix up my stock 02 WJ. Running in to some trouble finding replacement bushings for my stock track bar. The only ones that I have found run around $70. Any recommendations for some around $20?

Might be cheaper to just replace whole setup.

NAPA sells them for $16 a piece. They don't carry them in the store and they have to order them, but the guy told me it would be next day.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. After doing some research it looks like I might actually just go with these

Anyone have any experience with them on a stock track bar? I saw that they might run a little large.

I have a used set for sale. Pm if you want to save some cash. These things don't soften up.

If they fit on a stock track bar I would highly recommend them. They will noticeably tighten up your steering wheel if yours are shot now.

If I just buy the bushing set without the hardware, do I have to buy another pair of sleeves or can I use the stock ones? That's if they even have sleeves.

I'd say you're good on that, I used stock bolts with a JKS Track Rod and the bolts fit no problem. Should be the same size sleeve.

So the stock track bar does have sleeves that I should be able to reuse with the hard-kor bushings?

You'll have to remove the bushings from the sleeves.
