Found at http://mysite.verizon.net/cshaines/villagerquest.htm "I decided to try a bushing from a 93 Maxima. It was 20 dollars and fit great (slightly different but fits with no modification). Instead of paying $550 for the lower control arms and having to rebuild the entire front end, it cost $40 and less than two hours of work.
