Default Daily trivia! Anyone know where these go? - 04-08-2016, 10:26 AM

So my car has been apart a long time (Turbo swaps), I finally got it all back together but had these bushings left over, I can't seem to figure out where they are missing from.. I assume they go somewhere in the steering / suspension but can't find where.... Any help is greatly appreciated..

Edit: Pic wouldn't attach so I imgur'd it..

They're too big for power steering reservoir and I didn't touch that it was already moved a year ago!

It looks like a sway bar end link.

Well I removed my stock turbos and installed new hybrids. So, the swaybar, power steering rack, and engine mounts all were removed at one point.

That's what I thought too and I had them grouped up with my sway bar as well but once I put the sway bar back in there was no where these could go.

This is possible but is there 2 of them per side? I only removed 1 bracket and don't recall these being in there.. The bracket is back in now and I don't see any possible way they'd fit in there?

How bout the bottom half of a body mount? It has a nut and retaining washer like shown.
