Idler Arm Bushing

I needed to drop my steering box and once I removed the castle nut and separated the idler arm a small little bushing covered in grease was still on the idler arm. When I removed it, I noticed it was split and open. So I am looking to replace just that piece. Problem is that I can't seem to find just that. Seems that I need to buy the whole idler arm setup to get just this little bushing. Does anyone know where to find or get one?

Re: Idler Arm Bushing

That's just a thick felt washer to help keep gunk out of the joint. It's not a necessity.
Used to be able to buy felt battery post washers. You might find those. It would probably
fit and function the same.
Edit: Some of the idler arms used a sponge type material.

A slice of rubber hose will work
