Default Name this part?

I found this underneath the Bonneville and was wondering where it came from. I'm going to take a wild guess at sub frame bushing? If so then frig.......frig.............frik'in frig.....And if so, Bill is going to give me HELL, and say "I told you so and I deserve it.

I can always hope it'* not the sub frame bushing bracket, can't I?

Looks like the cap on the bottom side of the sub frame bushing.

Yawn.. You know what it is... it'* the remnants of a subframe bushing.

Good news: you have all of the stuff in a bag in the garage.
Bad news: it'* cold

I was waiting for this moment and I deserved it.

Thanks everyone and Bill, thanks for taking it easy on me. I'm going to look at it as the glass is half full since Bill was nice enough to get me all the parts and he he'* right, it'* in a bag in the garage.

I'm glad you got me the bushings Bill and yes it is too cold to do it now so Mick'* and I are going to take it easy on the car till warm weather is upon us and it'* a must do this summer.

If my subframe was hanging on only 3 bolts and the 1st one let off because the bushing plate literally rusted off, I wouldn't wait till summer. I know its cold outside, but I'd get some good gloves, a tarp, a couple of jacks and jackstands, and suck it up. Work for 10 minutes, come back inside to warm up. If one more of those bushing plates snap off, which is likely considering they're now under more stress, you'll find yourself up **** creek without a paddle.

hiya frank!

the last thing you want is to have the powerplant fall out from under the car going down the highway

if your going to drive on it..keep it limited, cause from here on in your on borrowed time.and its just a ticking time bomb before one of the other bushings lets go then youll have more than just a bushing kit and some new bolts on your hands..then your looking at serious problems

just sayin!..i know you got a nice heater in that garage of yours!! consider yourself lucky..cause myself like some unlucky folks are stuck working out in a cold frozen gravel driveway!
