Default What is this?

So last Sunday I was changing the oil and filter on the PT, after that I decided to rotate the tires. While taking of the tires I also started inspecting the brakes and the bushings. While doing that, that's when I found this.

What is this and I know I'm gonna have to start making preparations to change them, correct?

They are called bump stops and you can get them at the dealership pretty reasonable. They just push/twist into place, no tools needed to install them.

You can also order from Parts House as well.

As bubba said, the bump stop. Here's a picture of one (looks like RockAuto is out of stock):

Your picture is what polyurethane looks like when it rots. Time to replace.

Here's a pic of mine. I cut the end "bump" off to accommodate for the lowered springs.

The actual term Chrysler uses is:

BUMPER, Jounce
