To see the pieces that comprise this area check out again Carson's site here, http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...layCatalogid=0

Carlos is holding the spring bumper or bumper back as known on Carson's site. This is the orignal one and still in good shape unlike the ones on the front.

Also notice the lower spring insulator at the base of the shock.

This may interest you Salim.

Here we have a picture of the one piece suspension support, collar piece (silver washer) and the top 14 mm nut.

Here Carlos has already reassembled the spring and noticed the rubber hosing at its base.
