They are Energy Suspension end link bushings part # 9.8105R that are sold for $12.99 at AutoZone in a
Yellow blisterpack that contain 8 Red bushings and 8 washers. The hole in the middle of the new bushing
is 3/8" which is too small for the RAM and needs to be open up to a little
over 7/16", I used my drill press for that task.

Is this what you guys ordered? I don't see an option for that 16MM specification:

Part Number 68061786AA
Part Name Stabilizer bar Regular cab
Online Price $171.10
