Need sway bar end link for 79 F150

My truck is a 79 F150 with 4WD, Regular cab, single front shocks. I need sway bar end link(s) like the one pictured below. The part number on mine is: D8TA-5K483-BA.

I need one to replace the one I broke, and if I can get two that are in better condition than mine, that would be even better. Note that mine are slightly rusted out on the shoulder just above the threads (where the bushing sides on). I cant find ANYONE online who sells this. If you have this, or know anyone who does, please let me know. Thanks!!

Yeah, I talked with them. They are offering the replacement bushings. Thats what both those part numbers are. Thanks for researching that though!

I found a company called Rare Parts that might be able to manufacture some for me. Sounds kinda spendy, but it looks like that might be my only route for a new part.

You sure you got the part number right? I'm just asking....not being rude. I've got a pair on a '78 or '79, and the part number was D8TZ-5K483-A. The drivers side had the "Ford Service Parts" tag still on it, so it had been replaced "recently", looks newer than the RH side. Let me know if you're interested. Thanks.
