Shock upper mount play

About to pull the shock off the Brutie.
I have got around 4mm of vertical play at the axle, which I have narrowed down to the upper connection of the rear shock.
Can anyone tell me if this is a spherical bush or whatever? I am trying to work out what my options are to repair or replace parts.

Thanks fellas, to clarify my gibberish, it is the bearing in the top hat of the shock.
Probably time to do a shock rebuild too, given it is now 4 years and 55000kms old, combined with our rubbish roads.

I am trying with no luck so far to get these bearings and for the ride height adjuster aswell and have sent an email to CBR Bearings with an enquiry so if Charlie can get and send some to me I am happy to add to the order for others here in Aus. Anyone interested let me know.

Hi Noel, do you by chance have no.s for them ?, I haven`t heard back from Charlie yet and would be good to triple check on numbers before placing an order to be sent to Australia.
