Rear Spring Bushing??

What should I do with this....?



I pulled it into the school's shop to do a oil change, looked behind me, and BAM, it was like that... What should I do and what is it? And how should I go about fixing it?

Thanks!

Are you talking about the bump stop or what? That's all I see out of place, they just push back in. Should be able to use your fingers to wiggle it back up in place and once it is just push up on it.

Ok, there are no tools needed? It's all corroded and stuff though.

Shouldn't need anything. And the corrosion and rust shouldn't affect anything unless that cup is falling apart.

The cup is falling apart... The brown stuff on there is just dirt and grime from the road I guess, and it is kinda ripped off of there...

Maybe try and find another cup from a Junk Yard then I guess. Anyone have a better idea? There is a 15mm bolt holding it up is all. You can get a wratchet with a deep well socket in there without taking the spring out.

Looks like half the bumpstop is still in there.

Pull the spring and dig the other half of the bumpstop out...replace the bumpstop...job done.
