Polyurethane might work. If you can't find any off the shelf that can be modified to fit then worst case you could get some custom made. If you go to the link below and download their catalog it's got a few pages of universal parts with dimensions.

Bushings for what ...?... suspension bushings are common for the most part, measure the OD, ID and the length.

If odd ball as long as you get the ID & OD correct, you can trim the length.
