Default faulty shock absorber

Driving home from work and heard a pop. Hadn't hit a pot hole or anything. Noticed my steering was pulling to left. I've had a check of all 3 wheels and the only issue I have come across is the rear drivers shock absorber. The wheel hardly went up when I jacked the car either.

Check the front springs - they are prone to snapping ( near the top ) when the top bearings get stiff.
Might not be but easy to check.

The fourth wheel is the one with the shock absorber
The springs look fine, will double check tomorrow but bother bearings were also replaced 18 months ago

Right found the issue I think. It's number 12 on this image http://i222.photobucket.com/albums/d...suspension.jpg
So what is it called and where do I get it?
