Please help me identify this bushing

Hello everyone.
I noticed a strange feeling in my Impala's handling the other day and also the occasional clattering noise going over speed bumps. So I bent down to have a look under her and saw that the right side shock absorber is missing a bushing.
I don't know the correct name for it, but my parts store tells me I have to replace the whole shock absorber because I can't buy this part solely.
I don't really trust them in this matter since these cars are very unusual here in Sweden.
Is there a GM original part number for this bushing or maybe some popular aftermarket alternative?
Very grateful for help.
I attached an image with the broken bushing circled.

Lower shock bushing. Typically if you call up the manufacturer (Bilstein, Monroe, etc...) they will send you a replacement.
