French term or phrase: des coupelles de guidage
From an insurance damage assessment report following a derailment. Thanks for any suggestions:

"L'absence d'un amortisseur peut également faciliter ce déraillement.

Chaque essieu est équipé de deux amortisseurs au droit de chaque roue. Ces amortisseurs sont constitués de deux ressorts concentriques immobilisés latéralement par des coupelles de guidage soudées sur la plateforme.

Sur l'essieu du 1 er bogie du second wagon, des traces d'impacts existent dans la cavité du ressort, ce qui signifie que les ressorts étaient manquants pendant le déraillement."
