Your caster/camber bushing is an offset sleeve that's mounted inside your steering knuckle & pressed around the upper balljoint stem. It'll be a project getting to it, but it's a simple project. As far as locating the aftermarket bushing your looking for, you'll have to see what the aftermarket steering/suspension companies have to offer.

If you took it to an alignment shop they should have had the bushings. our alignment shop installs that when we do the alignment.

You have to take the upper balljoint nut off and use a airhammer to push the bushing out. But the only problem is you dont know what position to put the bushing in without having an alignment machine.You have a certain degree that you have to put the bushing in to get the proper alignment angle.
