84 to 94 XJ Steering column

Hey everyone. I purchased a steering column from an 84 to 94 Jeep XJ and during shipping fedex decided to play hockey or some other physical sport with the package. When I unboxed the steering column the green plastic bushing that the lower bearing fits in was in about 5 pieces. I need to find a replacement and all the ones I find on the internet look like they are for the YJ. The XJ steering column has the firewall shroud welded to the end of the column so the bearing and plastic bushing is all that is in the end of the column shaft. The YJ has a small plastic bushing that the berring snaps into with a ring that fits over the end of the column and snap rings that hold all of that in place. There is none of that for the XJ and the plastic piece seems to go way up into the bottom of the column. The one thing is the bearing looks the same between the YJ and XJ.

Can some one point me in the right direction?

They shared a lot of the same parts as early chevy S10 trucks/blazers - might have some crossover...

Resolution to this, Well there really isn't one because the part is not made anymore, to my complete surprise. But this is what I had to do. I hammered FedEx until they reimbursed me for the column; calling claims department several times a day for a couple of weeks and I finally got to talk to a manager that actually listened to me and decided they were in fact responsible for the damage. Since this column is actually going into a wrangler and I have to remove the bottom flange... I am going to just cut off the bottom of the column on this column and the wrangler column and weld the bottom of the wrangler column on the XJ column. This way I can get and use the bearing kit for the YJ Wrangler. A Huge pain in the butt, but I now have a solution in the works.
