Default Loose seat hinge

So I installed some leather seats in my XJ today and I can't be happier with the quality of the leather for a junkyard seat. There is an issue though that I couldn't see when I pulled it from the WJ.

The inside hinge (the one next to the center console) has play in it, and results in the seat back being just crooked enough to notice when you're sitting in it. My original XJ seats are in fine mechanical condition and all the parts seem to be interchangeable. (I converted the leather seats to manual, and flip forward to fit my 2 door)

What is the best way to tighten up that inside hinge? Can I swap the internal bushings from my XJ seats into the WJ seats? Are they the old style that are just pressed together and can be pounded back into spec?

Mods, sorry if this belongs in the GC forums but the seats are pretty much the same and I wanted more visibility, thanks!
