A parts store should be able to cross-reference a bushing with the inside & outside diameters that you need. This may require a salesperson who knows how to use "the book", as the computer may not have the info. A quick Google search found someone saying a late-'80s Probe unit might work, and another saying he used one from some kind of Chevy.

Be sure the input shaft length won't be a problem.

Keep in mind those cars a cheap I would look for one that had a V8 from the factory then all the springs and brakes would be right. Heck you are looking at less than 3 grand for sure. Sell the car you now have to offset the cost and you will be cheaper in the end.

Or buy a really cheap one with a rust problem and just reuse the mechanical parts you need, scrap the rest....
