Bump stop? Near side shock absorber

I replaced the nearside shock absorber. While removing the bump stop from the old spring assembly the nut on the rubber bump stop broke off.
Im looking for a replacement but cant find. Im not sure what it bumps against - the body? Where can i get a new one?
Regards

Easy enough to work out what it bumps against and how it all hangs together . Just look at the other side as I assume its still as built.

Then ask Dan at Duckworth Parts for a price of any parts needed. 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.
Lots of Euro Trash
53 Series one low mileage let go foolishly years ago looking at current prices.
Series 2A Safari restored fully while in Saudi Arabia years ago, sold on to a Brit.
FL2 MY10 TD4 GS traded in at 2 years
FL2 MY13 TD4 GS Current

Ha Ha I laugh because I did have a look at the time - yes, the driver's side one is different ... afraid I can't be bothered to go outside in the cold and dark to photograph it - but it is - both my brother and I had a look and were perplexed ...
Here's a couple photos of the near side one - in situ on the right hand side of the shock photo, and after it came off .
Thanks

If you are talking about the lump of rubber and steel hanging from the lower spring seat do not worry to much. This is a 'mass damper' fitted to try and help cure a noise issue from the rear strut assembly.

Wow - how do you know such a thing ..?

Thank you - it was perplexing me. There is one on the driver's side it turns out (managed to get a good look yesterday while the diff was being changed) but it's on the front side of the spring seat - very close to the body, so I thought maybe it was a bump stop for that but couldn't be for lots of reasons.

Thank you for solving this mystery. If I ever get a noise issue, where would I get a replacment? Maybe I will try and re-use this one.

It helps when you work for the company that supplied the dampers and upper body mounts to JLR!
