Front diff bushings

Where can I get new bushings for my front diff? I replaced my ELS senor yesterday and noticed that the bushings are pretty warn, and i get a bad thunk in the mornings when I first put it in reverse. So I'm thinking I need to replace them. I've looked at Rockauto, Autozone, and Google! Is this a dealer part?

You can get two of the three but the front you have to buy the bracket with the bushing in it. That one is only available from the dealer as far as I know.

The 2 bushings that do not require a bracket are actually referred to as isolators, I think the part number is 52089516ab. The part with the bracket is 52114354aa.

Prices are slightly higher than above. I copied and pasted from the tutorial: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/h...cement-1299567

I just ordered these myself and plan on changing them out pretty soon.

I actually just got these replaced at the dealer 3 days ago (under warranty). They were totally shot. Just the upper 2 though - the front lower one was in good shape. I was shocked at how much the front dif was moving up and down! Rather scary actually.

Oh sorry - I should have elaborated - I had the foresight to buy a Max Care warranty when I bought the jeep back in 2010. For what I spent on that Warranty it has paid for itself almost 3 times over now. All I pay is $150+tax when I get service done.

I believe it is a damper, to limit vibration.

Ok weird... how does it work? When I poked my head under there and it looks like a brick with a hole drilled through it...

I am definitely no engineer, but if I was guessing, the added weight is harder to move so it helps to dampen out the vibration or change the frequency where the vibration would happen.
