I think you'll have to buy a new steering shaft, I doubt you can get the bushings alone. I got tired of the the slop in my steering, that I traced to the steering shaft, and I bought a new one from my Ford dealer because I couldn't find an aftermarket replacement. A little while after, I did find an aftermarket replacement shaft on Jegs, or Summit, a Borgeson part maybe, so that might be a better option. The new Ford shaft has the same design issue and it has loosened up some, but is not as bad as the old one.

Your broken piece is part of an assembly. There are lots of individual parts listed in diagrams, but that does not mean you can get them individually. My guess is that if you could get a new bushing, you'd still have a sloppy steering shaft because all the other parts are worn, and the design is still going to lead to that sloppiness. I believe the part I bought is the assembly shown as 38676. That is the telescopic shaft that goes from the firewall to the steering box. Your broken bushing appears to be inside that assembly. If I was doing it today, I'd buy the Borgeson piece. It looks like less potential for slop.

I think I paid around $250 at my Ford dealer. The Boregson shaft lists around $240US on Summit, but should be available locally in the GTA. You don't really want to improvise with something as critical as a steering component. A used one from the junk yard will work, but will likely be sloppy.
