Default Johnny Joint replacement bushings? where do I get?

I think these are old RE rear upper control arms. I cannot seem to find a rebuild kit. Any ideas? Just the johnny joint side, other side is still ok. And actually its just the 2 bushings and a washer.

There super flex joints if there RE arms. You can get rebuild kits at 4wheelparts.com or im sure ironman on here can get them.
You can get a complete rebuild kit or you can buy the pieces separately.

Flex joints is what I was told when I bought the truck. All the RE flex joint kits I see have a screw in adjustment piece in place of the lock ring and washer that I have. Must be old old RE maybe.

looks like an old bds arm possibly?
re arms are a lighter color grey, look like old bds color?
all re arms i have seen have the pre load adjusters that screw in.
try currie johnny joint bushings, they look similar.
clean and polish the center ball, it might be fine?
