rear LCA bushing for shock mounts

I'm replacing the rear shocks and springs w/ coilovers and was surprised to find that where the shock mounts to the LCA, it's not a hard mount - there's another rubber bushing.

Has anyone heard of a poly replacement for this? Energy suspension doesn't seem to offer an alternative.

Have you checked the dealer's parts catalog to see if there are any OEM's available?

No - but I don't want to put another rubber one in there. It seems to me it just adds noise to the coilover, which should be doing all the damping. I expected direct attach points to the control arms, like the fronts have.

I’ve been asking a few people if they would make replacements for a while now. I’ll probably end up doing something on my own before spring
