Weird...I was just changing shocks on the back of my 01 EX Sedan awhile back and came across this same problem...
Yes there is a metal tube going through the rubber bushing. Mine was one huge chunk of rust (bolt to tube inside bushing) whole way through. My removal method, and only option remaining seeing as I too broke off the mtg tab with threads on the front side of the affair, was:
A few remgrit blades and angle die with a cutoff wheel later (lookout for gas fumes!) my new shock is in. I tried PB blaster, Liquid Wrench, Amsoil PM, WD40, everything...when I was done the thing was one big chunk of solid rusted metal.
Just weird it seems to happen on one side and not the other?
