looking for NOS transmission shifter linkages GM parts 563565 bushing and 563566 grommet. I have located the 563565 bushing at gmpartsgiant.com http://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/gm-bushing-563565.html but the 563566 grommet has been discontinued. Any suggestions as to where to find an NOS grommet? Not having much luck searching online. I just inherited this ride from my 90 year old father-in-law who just quit driving, but I don't have room for it and want to sell it. But the shifter is sloppy going into both reverse and drive and I need to get it fixed before I can put it up for sale.

there is a bushing kit at Honest John's Caddy Corner with a photo http://www.honestjohn.com/parts/?show_part=175 but not sure if dark colored part in upper right is 563566 grommet I am seeking. This kit is a reproduction and contains bushings for 71-89, but the 85 Eldo front wheel drive is kind of an oddball from most of that vintage from Cadillac. I believe that the 3 light/white colored bushings in the kit fit years/models other than the 85 Eldo.

With the 85 Eldo being very similar to the 85 Buick Riviera, would perhaps the shifter linkages bushings be the same (interchangeable)? Seems like there were alot more 85 Riviera's produced than 85 Eldo's. I dunno, just a thought.

Thanks for the assist in advance.

Look around at the packages marked HELP at your local chain auto parts store. You might find something that will work finding nos parts like that is nearly impossible.

I used a HELP line package of GM truck door hinge bushings and the G circlip from a Hurst shifter bushing kit years ago.

A few years late to the party, but if anyone wants the bushings go over to Ebay. For less than $20 I got both pieces delivered. One minute later and I was a shifting fool. Fyi

Also they can be digital printed. I think

The Honest John's Caddy Corner link you gave shows that they have the kit for the Eldorados and the sevilles for $70. Has more parts in the kit.
