In regards to an 88GW,

Can anybody please id the part next to the red arrow (not the rust)?

I think it is some kind of body mount, it is falling apart but resembles a rubber donut.

thanks
Rob

Yup, it's a body mount. Unless it falls out or you carry heavy loads in the rear, I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

yep, rear body mount...frame is rusted away from the mount...same on mine and many others...might be a bad thing in a wreck or a side hill but other than that its just a bug...

I see what you are talking about now.
Be a PITA but I think you could just weld a new piece in there with the correct size hole in the correct location.
Probably be harder to get the mount off than do the sizing & welding.

If it's like my '71 (and I think it is) you'd have to take the rear bumper completely off (should be able to grind off bolts if needed) and then that rear crossmember of the frame can be unbolted from the frame. On mine there where six bolts on each frame rail (two facing out, two on bottom, two on top). Considering the rust none of them will probably come out freely and all can be easily ground off except the two on the tops of the framerails on each side. Would have to get a nut splitter in there, or maybe a sawzall? Not sure as it's pretty tight with the bodywork in the back. I just trimmed up the body panels in the rear to improve the access, but that's not a fix for everybody.
