Shock question

Last night I was thinking about my rear subframe swap I will be doing. I instelled the Bilstien HDs about 3 years ago. I rememebr a few months back a post talking about the plastic or rubber insert piece that goes inside the shock tower and sticks out through the top into the truck. Mine does not have this....I looked on REALOAM but can not locate it. I have a 74 model. Are these pieces required? Reason I ask is I am getting a thump noise from my right shock when I back out into the alley then again when I take off. Sounds like a loose shock....thanks in advance and if you can find a post with this part please post me the link

Nick, who put that shock in without that bushing? I am surprised you haven't noticed a tremendous amount of noise and maybe some movement back there.

One would have to wonder, or at least SHOULD wonder, what all that space around the shock and the hole was for when they installed the shock.

SSHHHHHH don't tell anyone Bill but I did it. A few days after I got the car, just took out the old shocks and installed the new shocks. I did notice the larger hole but I had a rubber shock grommet that when on each side. I figured that just must be how BMW did it. Lets keep this between us LOL.

Yes it was hair brained..speaking of hair...BLUNT what do these run for 2 with the metal sleeves just in case these are not long enough
