shift linkage bushings... Where to get new?

I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about... The little round bushings in teh rods in a C4, C6, FMX or even NP208 or NP205 shift linkage. Ford used the little bushings in a lot of things. They basically slip over a 'stud' kinda thing coming out of the shifter and the shift level on teh device to be shifter, and the flat part of the linkage with a hole in each end pops over the bushing. Bushing holds it secure so the linkage is tight and doesn't go anywhere. They are a pain in the arse to pop off without bending them, so I usually burn the ones that are being stubborn, so as not to damage the linkage, just need some new ones to tighten everything up.

I can't find these bushings anywhere locally and one my my friends saw fit to commandeer all my parts catalogues (gggrrrrr... *shakes first*) so if anyone knows where to get these bushings I'd appreciate it.

they're still available from the dealer or any trans shop should have them or be able to get them

Pivot Bushing

Bought one at Bleakley Ford last week, Cost around 5 bucks. I mentioned that I was surprised that they had it and the parts guy said Ford has used this part since the late 40's. I did take the old one in with me.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. Maybe with this linkage tightened up I can finally get my backup lights working properly.
