    brushens over rearend falling to pieces.

    On my 99 TA I have noticed that the upper brushens are comming apart. The ones that stops the rearend from hitting the top of the frame. Have anyone had to replace these and what is the correct name of these mounts/brushens?

    Sadly now demodded :(

    They are "bushings" and I believe the proper term for them are rebound bushings.

    I could be wrong though.

    And I've not yet had a problem with them.

    Axle stops..

    Unless you're lowered there is really no reason to mess with them other than I guess for looks.. Many of the lowered guys cut them anyways.. You should be able to get aftermarket replacements @ napa, or one of the other auto parts chains..

    I think "jounce" or bump stop is the correct term, when I worked at DANA that's what we called them.

    True factory replacements are hard to find, some guy sells them online, can't remember the site but it's like "bills camaro parts", something simple like that, and they're expensive

    OEM part numbers:
    -10164173 for use with P245/50ZR16 tires
    -10282449

    don't know why there's a specific # for a tire size.
    if you can 'cross reference' the OEM #s' to a replacement one,use should be able to get the correct ones.

    Am I the only one that seems to have this problem? And are they really not a must have.

    Which one what? You have to look. Notice the word, "universal"..

    I posted a link that demonstraits it is easy enough to find companies that make them..

    One would need to do the rest for themselves by simply typing "camaro" into the sites search field..

    Replaced mine when I upgraded to the MWC 9" and used a pair of Prothane Motion Control 1-1301. One thing to consider with the poly bushings is they are hard as a rock and when you hit them it hits hard! I've heard of people drilling holes in them or buying the ES ones that have the hole in the middle, but either way, polys are rock hard. You also have to modify the spacer to make them work.

    you can not buy factory replacements any more. The energy susp one needed is for a jeep. the tab needs to be cut off though. No big deal to it.
