I bought one from TSC because mine was frozen up and I broke the bolt trying to get it unstuck. The original "U" that fits around the rock shaft wasn't long enough for the new top link so I got a piece of 2"x1" flat stock I had and took it to the sheet metal shop I used to work at. They have a water jet and cut me out a new one with 3/4" longer legs. Works great. If you don't have access to a water jet you can always make one with a piece of 1" x 1/4" flat stock by heating it and bending it into a "U" and drilling holes for the pin to go through. Good luck with your project. If you need pictures I'll be happy to take some.

Hex steel rod was about $15
left hand tap about $15
Left hand all thread about $12
right hand all thread was about $10
All of this was sourced on ebay and online metals.com.
If I remember correctly, everything was right at $100 and I would have been able to make 2-3 toplinks.
