This is where I got mine: www.thebigbearingstore.com

I understand ATV and quad store carry them as well. There is also Amazon and Ebay. I found the above store when searching for pillow blocks.

Found some for a MTD tractor, light weight and strong, think this is what I'm gonna go with, and they're only $21.00.

Try a local Lawn Mower Repair Shop. If they don't have them they can probably order them for you with all the other little parts and nuts and bolts they are always buying. The shop by me ordered 2 of them for me and didn't even charge any shipping and basically charged me what they cost them, a little under 6 bucks apiece for heavy duty 3/8" male ends. What was better was they ordered 4 of them so if I need 2 more they will probably be there for years to come. Took about a week to get. They didn't come with any nuts though, but they had some for pennies a piece. The threads are finer than a typical 3/8" bolt.

Mark, McMaster-Carr has them for a reasonable price and they have left and right threaded ones http://www.mcmaster.com/#rod-ends/=jd73sa

I live close by so I don't have to worry about shipping but here is a great place to order from and they aren't very costly either.

Lefthander Chassis has just about any style and they also carry all of the zip ties and in different colors if you need those too. If you live close enough you can also stop in and purchase metal tubing from them, with a small fee they will also cut the material for you.
