I think in your first pic, of the DIY, the caster bushing is on the right side of the pic, inside the green loop, mounted horizontally, with the large fulcrum bolt. The only difference between earlier and later cars is that the strut rod is mounted vertically on '98-'00 (I think - is that the right range?).
What you've pictured on your car is too far to the rear. The strut rod is in front of the lower control arm. There are two small (13mm?) bolts that connect the strut rod to the lower control arm, then, again, what you see pictured above.
Before you do any work on that, make sure you note where the fulcrum bold is oriented relative to the bracket (mark it with a paint pen or something), or plan on going directly to a shop for an alignment, since the rotation of that bolt is the method for adjusting caster on the car's suspension! (Well, you probably want to get it an alignment any time you work on the suspension anyway, but... you know... simple good practice)
