I was going to say end link also but its too close to the diff. and not beefy enough. and with end links they should have 2 ball joints at both ends but unless the ball joint blew out. I don't remember my end links being that close to the diff...or maybe it is the end link.

i guess crawling under the car and looking makes too much sense to the OP

It's an end link.

I literally just replace my friends blown front 2 last weekend.

But like Trav said all he has to do is get under and see wtf it's connected to.

second thought i think you are right. OP try checking your headlights to see if they are level and adjust that rear hanging piece back to adjust the headlights.

Thread moved to the appropriate section.

To the OP, find a schematic online of the Z's suspension parts and then crawl under the car to get acquainted with the car. I would also suggest browsing some vendor sites to see that they have to offer for replacement parts. At that point, you'll confirm what you've learned while conducting your examination of the Z.

That may be so but it's still what it looks like.
