Help needed PLEASE

I'm trying to fix my dads steering column with new bearings and such but this piece is broken and I cannot find it anywhere. Does ANYONE know where to find this piece and what is it called?

Re: Help needed PLEASE

Those are available from gmc Paul I think? The whole plastic **** in the steering column pissed me off and that ****y pressed bearing up top and the bushing down low. I took it to a friendly machine shop and had them build me bronze ones I could grease. I searched timikens site and found a sealed bearing with the right inner and close outer deminsion and had the shop make it fit. Took all the sloop out of it and improved the turning smoothness a .million times over. Of course mine was out so I could take it and have good measurements made and having a friendly shop made it cost less than 40 bucks. I think...someone offers the lower bushing in bronze with a grease ring ? There's an exoded view of the column in the faqs section I am pretty sure.
