Does anyone know of a source for the exhaust olives that seal the joints between the link pipe and down pipe/silencer? Are they from another vehicle?

I got one from SJ with my new silencer for the silencer to link pipe joint but I had to undo the link pipe to downpipe joint in order to get the silencer position right so now I need another olive. The one from SJ is solid stainless (nice) but costs over £30 so I'm not keen to go down that route for the second one!

Can't risk re-using the old one as it's quite corroded and the pipes will be in a different position than they were before so it'll probably leak, even with some sealant on there...

All I know is that the inner diameter is 2 1/2" (about 63mm) but I've no idea if it's common to another vehicle to search online.

Any help, advice, suggestions welcome!
