any transmission guys here?

I have a 88 f150 with a 5 speed and the shifter is so loose that I can barley shift it. I took the shifter out and found that there is supposed to be nylon bushings that hold the shifter ball in place or holds it tight. Well there gone. Is there any one that sells just those parts the top and bottom nylon things? Ford said that i need to buy the whole top to the transmission to fix it I'm Hopping there is a easier way.
Thanks for any info. Dan Oh and i think the transmission is a Mazda.

If you can get me the size I may be able to make you some bushings I have some nylon tubing it's 1 1/2" or 2" inside diameter. I may even have some 1" around. It'll be the best price-FREE! I bought it to make a body lift but needed but ended up getting a kit for $20 off a bud. So i have about a foot of material let me know - Email [email protected]
