Rack and pinion??

I'm changing out th rack and pinion on my 88 Lx and unfortunately the car sat for the last 5 years!! The driverside mounting bolt was fused to the sleeve going through the k-member. The only way I could get it out was to cut it ( cutting through the sleeve also!) Where or what can I do to get a new sleeve??

Sleeve? meaning whats around the bolt? It should come with new bushings, if not you could call a junk yard and see how much they would want for one.

Their is a sleeve in the k-member that the mounting bolts slide through. New bushings don't come with any hardware, just bushings! LRS has new mounting bolts, but nothing on the sleeve/ cylinder that is in the k-member! I've been to a bunch of salvage yards and only come across 1 foxbody, so hopefully I can find it!

Sorry!! I'm a dumb- A, its the sleeve in the bushings! When I cut through it, part of it was wedged in the hole and looked like it went all the way through the k-member!!

You might get lucky and find something at a hardware store or a tractor supply.
