Where did this washer/spacer come from?

I don't have my camera at work but Found this under my Bronco monday it looks a oval washer with hole in the middle and a slit from the middle to the one end. Never seen anything like it before but came from somewhere.-Bob

Re: Where did this washer/spacer come from?

After further Investigation on lunch hour, found that it may go between the frame and body mount?! The rad support frame or whatever it's called is completely rusted through/cracked to the body mount bushing on both sides. The battery side is the worst but none the less, I guess that needs replacing. Looks like a very time consuming job that will require at least a case of cold ones and a friend. Well I guess I should think about replacing the fenders since I'll have the front section off. Damn, I hate doing body repair!-Bob

Yeah. I had a bunch of rusty flaky things come out that kind of looked like that when I took the radiator support off. I think it's so the factory can get the body pannels just right.

Re: Where did this washer/spacer come from?

Well I have a new Core support a little pricey at $150 but was the only option I had. Now for new mounts, I priced originals at the dealer since I couldn't find them listed anywhere. I didn't want to do any body lifting but for the cost of the two front bushings (just the rubbers) was gonna be over $70!! However I was able to locate a 2" kit for $65 from summit. Now I assume that is just the poly/nylon bushings and bolts only so I guess I'll go that route. I have to post while at work because I keep getting "not a valid host" error when I try to post at home and can't seem to figure out why. Anyhow, is there any suggestions/ or things to look for when I do this body lift, other than drilling the front holes out to 1/2 inch? -Bob

Re: Where did this washer/spacer come from?

Just make sure you do it right, so you do it once. I mean, clean up any rust you have in the area, and do what you can to protect it. All my body mounts look brand new, except the front. when I do the replacement, I am going to clean everthing real good, use the poly, and keep it clean up there from now on. Not looking forward to this task either, though mine sounds a bit easier than yours.
