    I was looking in my 1967 parts book and it only lists one pinion snubber support (17-19-20) for Dart, Valiant and Barracuda (1st column) , but a few rubber bumpers (17-19-3) for same.

    This seems to suggest that the snubber support is the same on 7 1/4 and 8 3/4

    There is a specific rubber bumper for 8 3/4 vs 7 1/4

    Can anyone confirm that the metal snubber support is the same 7 1/4 and 8 3/4?

    Thanks

    Not sure if they’re different but if they are you need one I’ve got a few restored/reinforced ones for 8 3/4.

    Not the same. I have tried to use the 7 1/4 on a 8 3/4. Didn't match.
