If tis a ea81 I have some I could part with. $10 for 2 of them plus the smalllest priority flat rate box. Check the dealer first to see if they still make them.

I'm curious about this too, if I cant find some I may just remove the sway bar on my ea82.. the clunking is getting on my nerves. the only bushings I can find(and I have exhausted the internet's resources) is the sway bar mount bushings, no one has the endlink bushings, and I am not buying an entire $152 swaybar just for the bushings..

I wonder if one could get some rubber from the hardware store and shape it as needed to fit? Not sure if they sell high enough quality rubber off the shelf, but it's a thought...

I had similar issues trying to locate a usable bushing for my EA82.  using a caliper I measured the existing bushing and sleeve trying to size up a replacement.  Eventually after a few failed attempts i wound up using Leaf-spring bushings.  Cost me $35 delivered (not including cash spent on the ones that didn't fit) for Whiteline #W71581 Rear Leaf Spring Bushings - Rear EyeAttached File  IMAG0118.jpg   125.21K   51 downloads

They are a bit of a chore to install.Attached File  IMAG0105.jpg   97.5K   55 downloads but worked out better than the ones I tried to trim-to-fit.

Not sure if you have CarQuest out there. If no one around has them, sounds like it's an online purchase. Maybe... AutoPartsWarehouse?
