What is this?

Have a mystery for you....

I picked up my 2000 Yukon XL truck today from the body shop. It suffered a front end blow as result of a semi-head-on collision. I know the following parts were replaced: front bumper assembly, grill, lights, front right fender, ABS brake control module, wheel & tire.

After parking it in front of the house to unload a few things, I pulled away and found a piece of hardware lying on the ground. I KNOW that part wasn't there this morning.... it either fell from my truck or from my mule/UTV. But I think I would have noticed it earlier if it was from the mule. Anyone have a guess as to what this part is? It is a rubber piece with a rather long, threaded bolt.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Laura

It's a mount for the core support, there are two of them one on each side of the radiator.

Wow - really. You are good!

So, it's from the Yukon. Any worry about driving it for a few days until I can get back to the auto body shop?

Either a body mount cushion that goes between body and frame, or a negative energy reservoir. No chance of further accidents once the negative energy is separated from the vehicle. It may not even have been from your truck, as a body shop employee may have just left it laying on/in your truck as they worked nearby.

I'm hoping all negative energy is separated from the owner as well. Could use all the positive energy possible at the moment...

My (out-of-town) boss said, "It looks like a bolt that holds on a subframe or other important suspension part. It is definitely not from the mule. This could be dangerous. If they replaced this bolt with a new one and this one was just left behind it might not be a problem."

Cripes, if it's not one thing - it's a dozen other...

Boy, that sure looks like the part. Now, where does it go? I did some google searches and can't find where to look for it - to see if the shop forgot to put it in place...

Thanks all! Laura
