Parking brake linkage bushing

Post by ppeters914 »

There are two parking brake linkage rods that run parallel to the rear axle housing. The left one is longer, and goes through a metal loop on the rear of the differential housing. My guess is that the purpose of the bushing is to support the rod, reduce flex, and keep it from banging around.

Does anyone know of an acceptable substitute and source for this part?

I used a short length of fuel hose from memory.
I split it and cut it so it was a very tight fit in the bracket.
Nissanman, just trying to help.

I cut a small section of strip foam rubber from a roll I have around. Worked great.
