10 bolt pinion snubber replacement
 
My 1980 Z28 has a mounting plate bolted to the body above my 10 bolt rear end and the bushing is missing causing the differential to travel up when I launch it or accelerate hard does anyone know of a replacement bushing and or after market rear pinion snubber that I could replace it with to improve the cars ability to hook up better and not interfere with the exhaust.

Thanks brother but I have a different set up ,leaf springs and my rear end is a floater no control arms or torque arm just a pinion snubber with the rubber snubber worn off. Any other links perhaps

The pinion snubber on these cars is only there to keep the rear end from hitting the floor on hard bumps. It's not use the way Chrysler used a pinion snubber to controll axle wind up. GM cars use slapper type traction bars or Cal Trax bars to accomplish this and it works better than the pinion snubber.

If you want to make use of a snubber, it will have to adjustable. I have used this piece on various cars. Just have to do some cutting and welding, ie hotrodding.
The stock snubber will never touch until the driveshaft is about to hit the floorboard, thats why GM put it there, which makes it useless for tuning your launch characteristics.
