I know I need new mounting rubber bushings (the ones just to the drivers side of where the steering shift comes thru the firewall) The mounting bolts move with the rack as you turn the wheel. Rubber bushing gone! Also need the rubber under the passenger side mount. My question is what are the part numbers for these 3 bushings so I can order and get the right parts.

Those bushings are held on with mounting brackets that are riveted together and not replaceable, at least with factory parts. The proper repair is to replace the rack and pinion assembly. I would start by looking at some auto parts stores to see if anyone makes a repair kit with new brackets and bushings. The rebuilders are going to replace these bushings if necessary, so we know someone makes them.

I've never done this, but you might investigate removing the brackets from an old rack assembly at a salvage yard.
