Are you talking electrolytics or paper caps? You can buy most values of 630V polyester caps (to replace paper caps) from Jaycar or WES Components. Can electrolytics are harder to find, especially multi cans. It's usually most cost effective to mount radial electrolytics under the chassis, leaving the old can in situ.

You don't generally need to replace polyester caps unless damaged by something else. Rare for this to happen.
