      can try the dealership. But for the age of the truck, you may find better luck in a junk yard.

      junkyard is your best bet, but usually the dealership can locate you one and if not try a parts store, i used to work for o’reilly auto parts and if you ask them they can special order you anything, if they seem like they’re not really trying then tell them to call warehouse for a part number.

      You have to know what kind of Transmission you have, before you can look for a bushing.

      Do you what kind it is?

      Once you know that you can find what you need at Resto 5.0
