Good to know thanks, I only had the Moss catalog at the shop (for their
exploded diagrams mainly) and they only listed

I was able to remove it fairly easily and it appeared to be the whole
silentbloc, the top cap was metal but perhaps it
wasn't the center covering cap but something that was below it. I'll
definately replace it but my worry is if the
steering arm is now distorted (visually it looks ok) then a new silentbloc will
work it's way south. I'm assuming that
if it's the case it won't do it all in 1 day...

Everything else appears true. I'm not 100% convinced it was accident damage,
it could have been damaged at the body
shop as they removed the steering rod and wanted to remove the steering box
(but couldn't). However I'll give them the
benefit of doubt and say it was the accident.
