Default Tamiya Hornet Shocks

Well, I am rebuilding my Hornet after a Summer of running it and I ran into a big problem. After re-filling the rear shocks, I set them on a shock stand, and went inside to do something. Not long after, I go outside and find a pile of oil beneath one of the shocks. Lone behold, the little bushing (Brass) at the bottom of the shock body was loose and leaking horribly.

Does anyone know where I can find these little bushings, or do I need a whole new body? Have any of you other Hornet guys had this problem?

Hopefully, I am not the only one.
