Dealer - one of P/N 5211015 and three of P/N 3799089 . You can also find them on Amazon and Ebay.

Or you can pay about the same total for the Dormans ... one out of a 49439 package (two in a pack) and two packages of 49440 (you'll need 3, there's 2 in each package again.) They don't seem to last as long as the Mopar ones, though (and before you sneer, remember, the ones on your truck are probably 23 years old ... )

While installing be sure to grease the bushings a bit; I used moly grease when I did the first one, then discovered moly will eat away at nylon (oops!) so try white lithium or silicon.

You can easily get these without the dealer they are at AutoZone and places like that for cheap.

Sure, if you really want to pay the same or more and do it again in a couple of years.

Have you actually CHECKED the price on the factory parts?

I have.

News flash: It actually costs MORE at AutoZone for the three packages than to just buy the proper bushings from the dealerships here.

Good to know. I've dealt with dealerships and simple parts like that I have paid way too much when a non OEM part was just as good or even better. but that is just my experience.
