Kick down rod end bushings

Is there a replacement for the plastic bushings on either end of the kick down rod. One of my bushings is cracking - still usable at this point. My kick down rod is for a 1969 FMX.

Yes there is. I bought some about 8 months ago off eBay. They worked excellent. Check there. I’ll try to find his contact info. But with eBay after so long it’s hard to bring up your purchases but look there

Superbond, thank you for the reply - I thought I needed to rephrase the question. What are they actually called? Any other description would be great.

the plastic grommets always crack, I bought an assortment, tough to get the one you need first time. Easy to trim/drill out if close enough to stock
