In case you're still needing an answer to this question, Dorman does make a kit that has new plastic bushings that should be what you need. Here is a link to RockAuto that has the pictures and part number for the kit:

If I'm answering this too late, I apologize. Hopefully this info will help someone searching for this same issue in the future.
