round 1969 pinion snubber
« on: October 02, 2013, 05:31:05 PM »
Awhile back,another post brought up the fact that there are two types of pinion snubbers used on 1969 Camaros. I have the round bolt on type on my 12B Nor. car. Mine is re-usable, but I may have found a suitable replacement. Here is the add: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-1964-72-GM-BODY-PINION-SNUBBER-ROUND-STYLE-TIP-GM-3996323-/350595013212  The part # is 3996323 for A body GM's. Did anybody ever determine what the Camaro part # should be? It just so happens that the traction bars on my car also use a snubber exactly like the pinion snubber. The traction bars,I believe, are about as old as the car and were on the car when I bought it in 1979. I am still trying to get info on these TBrs with no luck so far. Hope this helps those needing this part if it is correct, which it looks good to me.

Here is my bolt in snubber solution http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=120604&highlight=pinion&page=2

found a replacement snubber that screwed into my plate (gm#3958061). It needs some trimming to sit flush and the bolt shortened, but it fits perfectly. It is sourced to a 1993 Doge D150 pickup - Upper control arm bumper. The Moog part# is K7293
