I'm replacing a broken rear drivers side shock on my 2000 Cabrio that snapped while driving. I have the replacement shock and have removed the old shock and spring assembly, however I need to know if there is a seat that the lower (smaller) part of the spring seats into on top of the lower spring mount. The diagram in the manual shows something called an insulator that apparently the lower part of the spring seats seats into on top of the lower mount, but I dont seem to have that part, not sure if I lost it when the shock snapped on me on the road. I have all the other parts of the spring/shock assembly including the upper spring seat, not sure if I need this insulator for the lower part of the spring.

Any help is appreciated.

FYI, looking at the passenger side spring/shock assembly, I don't see anything that the lower part of spring seats into, it appears to just be sitting on the lower mount.
