I'm hoping a fellow Gen 2 owner can help - I'm 2000 miles from home. On my drive out here I started to hear a "creaky" noise when accelerating hard from a full stop. Once I'm up to speed or if I accelerate slowly there's no noise. Today I was able to jack the car up and have a look underneath. I don't see anything obvious, but as I was poking around I found this piece. It's 1-5/8" in circumference and about 1-1/2" high. It looks like half of a suspension part of some kind that broke at a weld on the top shown in the first photo. It is metal outside and inside with rubber in the middle. I found it laying loose right on top of the hole in the bracket of the third photo. I can't see where it came from. I'm going to jack up the car further to get a better perspective, and will look at some exploded diagrams. Meanwhile I'm hoping that a PriusChatter will recognize the part and point me in the right direction. Mamn thanks to anyone who could have a look and provide any guidance.
