call one of the online NASIOC OEM vendors (e.g. subarugenuineparts)

you can replace with stiffer ('Group N') parts or an ALK if you want a performance upgrade, otherwise just replace with stock

Which one broke, the front or rear? You can get an ALK for the rear or replacement bushings. If it's the front, we have replacement bushings for there as well that will also increase turn in response and handling.

they are the REAR bushings for the FRONT control arm... which appears to be what you need based on your original post

no

an alk superficially looks and fits the same, but it offsets the control arm mount point so as to change the geometry
