Drove home yesterday and parked in my garage. This morning, I see this on the floor ( under left side ).....
I would appreciate any helpful hints. Then I'll do some maintenance to replace these little 'turds' ?? :oops:

Looks like a bump stop

Easily replaceable, it sits/snaps into the cup-like mount. You should do both sides
Thanks.... Good to read it is easily replaceable..... ( What sort of junk did GM use, to make these things ?? It feels like a styrophome )

I find different prices for the rears ( $13, reg autoparts.. - $25 each Summit )....
Is a "Bell Tech" version better , or is 'standard' OK ?)

Kind of confusing to where to buy..... ( I see 'square' for the front, but that looks incorrect?)

That messed up hockey puck has been eaten up from corrosion. Has this rig spent time in a salt on the road state? How close to ocean salt air do you live? Check all you body mounts too.

To be clear, the fronts are jounce stops and the rears are bump stops.

See this link for an explanation:

The most important ones are for the front, since they are part of the suspension and (should) contact the lower control arms.

Did you lose the fronts, or the rears?
Not to be nit-picky, but isn’t the spec touching, or within 1/4” or something? Pretty sure mine are just about 3/16” away, while sitting level. Hoping that’s ok, or I’ll have to get slightly larger spacers.. (these pics are while in the air)
