I thought I'd add a note since I solved the problem, at least for now. That bushing would be very hard to source so I decided to use two regular rubber o rings to "fill" the space. I just got a few from the hardware store and they squished in the space when I tightened the bolt down. Seems to hold pretty well, taking up the slack and making the seat feel stable. They may last a while or not. But they aren't hard to change now that I know what is the issue. There is no compromise of safety here because the bolt itself is not going to break if there is an impact or accident.
