The diff bump stop was part of the Tickford suspension. If your car wasn't optioned with Tickford suspension, it didn't get the bump stop.

You can still pick them up from a dealer, and from memory they come with two self tapping bolts to fit it. There is already provision for the bump stop on the car above the diff snout.

I think they're same size as the two that bolt to the rear of the large muffler.
