Yeah I think that might be it Cosmo. Ironically enough, my guitar is getting a setup right now but when I get it back I will see if it fits in there. I'm assuming it serves the same general purpose as stated above?

Does it look like the bushing in this pic? Edge Zero bridge?

No, I don't think you will ruin anything by using it without the washer. It will only, as you say, have some extra play.

They are there to give the bar a snug fit. An old trick is to take those off, apply nail polish (clear is a good choice), then put the washers back on. This will expand them slightly and the arm will have less (hopefully no) play.

Yours doesn't look white, but I would think it's the same purpose. They are usually quite hard to get off, they don't just fall off.
Thanks for the quick reply, it is appreciated. Mine just popped right out last time I took my trem arm off. I'm assuming the little extra play in the arm won't damage the trem if I use it without the washer?

Need Help Identifying This Part

So I was getting ready to put my 1570 in it's case and noticed when I pulled out my trem arm (edge-zero), this little plastic part (washer?) came out with the bar. I am wondering what it does and if it is needed? I have not used my trem since it fell out as a precaution. Anyone have any ideas?
