Default Washer from suspension???

Hey guys. I have taken apart the suspension on this 03 cruiser like 4 billion times. I should probably know this, but I don't. I was trying to release the strut and knuckle so I could get the axel out on the passenger side. Everything including hub assembly was off. As I pulled down on the knuckle, this washer came chiming down onto the driveway. No idea where it came from. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Cool Re: Washer from suspension???

sorry, I have no idea what that is for.

but if you could lay a ruler next to the washer showing the size it may be helpful in identifying it.

no need...

i'm 100% it's a spindle nut washer. it's thick, it's large, it's the only washer like that on a car.


the fake board print in the countertop pic.. each board is appx 5/8" to 7/8". i just threw one of those counters in my dumpster today.
here's the nut, washer, etc:

they usually give you a new nut and washer with the axle so there's a 50/50 chance he has a new one already installed and can just throw it out

Lol! It was from the axel shaft!
Wow! Sadly the new shaft only came with an axelnut that I wasn't a fan of....
