What is this part called?

459 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Crazyhorse

I have a 2000 Cadillac Eldorado ETC and some rubber inside of the front right shock has been squeaking like a mafk and driving me crazy. It's not the bellows part itself I think, but a rubber bushing/ring thing inside of that. Whatever it is it's very loud and making it hard to be stylish.

Is this the correct part to buy?

Thank you all.

Thank you very much for the reply boss.

I took your advice and jacked up the strut. I hiked up the bellows and sure enough, a little plastic son of a bitch was all malformed up in there. So, as evidenced in the picture, I popped that sucker off with the crowbar. Nice and quiet now. I am guessing its function is to keep gunk out of that shiny strut? My new question: is it alright to drive around for a few days with that upper strut bearing thing off, until I get the new one? Thanks for the help man.
Thanks for the reply Submariner.

You are correct, I have an ESC, not an ETC. I don't know how I got them confused, I have known this. Know I know it doubly. As for the oil I had sprayed some silicon lubricant on the stut before I removed the dust cap, it's not coming from within the strut. I didn't know the ETC and the ESC were so different. Anyway thank you for helping me out and for giving me all this info, it's much appreciated.
