@Boxer_Steve63 I had to replace the same bushing on my 05 XS. After replacing the same bushing you found to be worn (I used Dorman bushing kit #49774 which was suggested elsewhere) everything felt tight. However, after getting everything re-assembled the wipers still have some play, tend to park above the heat elements and the driver side wiper stops short of where it should. The bushing kit was about $4 so it's worth buying another to replace the remainder of the OEM bushings but it sounds like a replacement linkage is in my future. I'd like to use an OEM part if I can find one at a reasonable price. Has anyone used an aftermarket linkage such as the Dorman or Ultra-Power?

If you end up rehabing your old linkage, I'd be interested in knowing which bushing kit you used and it it was successful.
