Shock Tower Rubber Grommetts
#1
I have honestly been looking for over a week and cannot find any replacement rubber grommets that sit on top of the shock tower right under the bolt head. The originals have dry rotted and are broken. Any help would be great!

Post a pic of what you need maybe that will help me know what you are looking for.

I'm pretty sure they came with the shocks. If your grommets are bad, your shocks may need replacing?

The previous owner installed KYB gas shocks in 96. From the records, the car has only driven 23K miles since that time. I hope I wouldn't have to replace those again already.
Also I wish I could post pics, but my laptop now works only in Safe Mode due to a virus from trying to use Bit Torrent. sigh...

If you are searching for the 2 bushings at the top of the shock, try Monroe part number P1137. http://www.rockauto.com/dbphp/x,catalog,...P1137.html

I think Chuck's link is what I was thinking of, and the price is reasonable.

Great find, I was looking for these earlier this year and could not find them for my NOS shocks. Thanks for the link.

Glad I could do a two for one post. The metal washers are not exactly the same as OEM but, they will work. Chuck

Just noticed the post. A while back I was chewing up the rubber grommets due to coil issues causing the shock to lean out against the metal of the shock tower top mount. I found rubber grommets at Advance and Autozone in the "Help" aisle. About $5 for a blister pack of 4. 2 of the four fit perfectly.
