Front upper Knuckle inserts

So I'm doing some work on my 2 cummins. Swapping axles and what not. I'm rebuilding the front axles on both. One is a 99 and the other is an 01. The 99 was in a wreck and the left steering knuckle was bent so I'm tearing it apart and I noticed the upper ball joint tapered insert on the axle was broke and pretty destroyed. Does anyone know a part number or where I can get some replacements? Thanks in advance. I searched with no results. I could be calling it the wrong thing...? Thanks in advance!

Is that truck a gasser? Looks like the camber bushing under the suspension >ball joint section in rock auto for a 99 - v10

It's a 99 Cummins. But that looks like it. After talking to a buddy he said they are camber inserts. So I've been searching for that. Thanks for the help. These trucks have been a pain in the since day one haha.

Yes that is what it is. Notice the hole is off center and has 6 positions. there is no front or back. It adjusts in and out for CAMBER, not front to rear for caster. Caster is done at the cam bolts on the lower control arms. Reason they are hard to find is they are seldom replaced due to not a wear part.

99 2500, Quad cab, 4x4 47RE, BD pressure lock on it, small BD 90/140 chip on the VP 44 connection plug, 17" 3rd gen wheels. 3.55 diffs. Ruenell front bumper and warn winch, Rancho adj shocks. 663k miles.
