I need some help -- can anyone identify this part (see picture)? I am in the middle of doing a drum to disc brake conversion - I have removed the upper and lower control arms, the master cylinder and the brake booster. I had to beat the snot out of the lower control arm bolts (using a punch and a sledge hammer). When cleaning up under the car, I found this part on the ground (drivers side). I am not sure if it is part of what I have removed, or something that came loose due the beating I gave the car (when removing the lower control arm bolts). I have not started reassembly yet, so I know it is not a new part. By the way, this piece had a lot of grease on it - I cleaned it up to figure out where it came from. Can anyone help me out??

Thanks

It's a ninja star. You just narrowly escaped with your life, buddy. Consider it a warning.

Did yours have castellated nuts with cotter pins in them? It looks almost like some sort of locking ring for a nut but there's nothing next to it for scale to see its real size.

Its the static noise suppressors on the spindles for the stock radio. There should be one for each side.

Aahhh...Ninja Star...thank you, my teacher!
This piece is 1.5 inches in diameter.
Yes, my ball joint studs have the castle nuts w/ cotter pins - I looked around at the the old hubs, spindles, etc and cant find a match. I am wondering if it came off the master cylinder/booster unit? or maybe from anther area of the steering? I can't seem to located a duplicate of this anywhere. I am just hoping that I didn't knock it loose from another area (like the tranny or something) when I was hammering on the car...

Hogdaddy-
Is this something that needs to go back on when installing the disc brake setup? I have not looked to see if they are part of the kit I purchased.

If you are using the stock am radio I think it may help otherwise don't need it. I don't believe they are being re-produced at this time.
