Just replace the whole arm, they are not very expensive. $86 for the OEM Lemforder from FCPEuro. I would expect you can find something similar across the pond.

I have seen 2 types of bushes - one that would allow the use of camber bolt to increase / decrease camber, and the other one can't (i.e. just have a simple hole). Be careful on which one to go for, if you are indeed using special camber bolts and installed them the way accordingly for that purpose
