T4 Post Icon shock absorber bushes

Hey folks have the front shocks out of the van at the moment and was going to give them a tidy up before refitting them. They're vw shocks and in good working order, however the rubber bush at the bottom is split, just wondering if its possible to get replacement bushes or do I need to replace the whole shock?

These used to be available from VW. You can also go to a dumpster outside a workshop and pick out a few as new bushes come with new shocks.

A kiss is just shopping upstairs for merchandise downstairs .
