Default '96 LSS Front Strut Problem

Maybe someone can help me with this. I'm in the process of changing my struts on my '96 LSS. One of the bump stop/boot retainers for the front strut had disintegrated. I've been to NAPA and Advance Auto and they both want to sell me a boot kit that has a bump stop that is entirely different and won't work for my application. Anyone else run into this problem?

Thanks,
Jim

After a little searching, I think I found the right part. Moog has a strut bumper P/N K8854 that should do the trick. For some reason, the bumper in the strut bellow kit isn't right.
