Where can I find this? (little foam washer/seal for idler or pitman)

Anybody know where I can find the foam washer or seal that's used between the drag link (aka center link) and the idler or pitman. In the foreground of this photo, you can see what I'm referring:

A part number would be great. Thanks!

Stepman,..I thought about doing that but don't know what material would hold up to the grease, friction and heat. Ideas?

Get some 1/4 inch thick closed cell foam.

Thick felt was orginally used on vintage cars, that had been soaked in oil.
And as Everett says closed cell rubber foam , like the stuff used on hiker bed rolls.
