Default Fridge compressor bushings

The bushings that mount under my compressor in the kegerator are toast and I'm having difficulty locating new ones. They have about a half inch round bushing with a teat top and bottom that holds it on the stand. I'm pretty sure the original compressor has been replaced as it's a late 50s fridge and the compressor looks almost new. Frigidaire imperial frost-proof product of general motors (never found a serial number crawling all over it). It works fine keeps my kegs at 38 on the lowest setting, it's just a little noisy when it's on. Anyone find anything that makes a good replacement or know where I can get some without a model or serial number?

Can you wedge some rubber grommets under it?

Try doing a google search for Vibration Isolators, you will get about half a million choices.

Or you can try,

Cylindrical Vibration Isolators - Mounts and Vibration Control - Grainger Industrial Supply

Thanks, I guess I wasn't calling them the correct name. Those look almost identical to what it has on it.
