You called it a "cone washer" and the part number I have is 12383460. This is correct?

12383460 WASHER

The parts center at the local dealership had them here under that number in Canada.

Part number would be the same anywhere though, right? I'm in Alaska. Didn't have time to go to the dealer today so I'll go by tomorrow. Also, I downloaded divX and watched that video, took off the black trim/cover where the hinge is on my Jimmy, wedged in a shop towel, and test drove it. No sound whatsoever. So I drove home and took out the towel, replaced the trim/cover, and I've been driving it unfixed since. AND I'M NOT HEARING IT ANYMORE!! I did the washboard thing again and there was nothing. I thought maybe since it's so cold the metal might have contracted so it's tighter now. Is it still a good idea to replace the washer so it doesn't come back or get worse later, or should I save my time?

Number will be the same in North America.

I would install the washers. The noise will come back.

Admittedly, I ghettoed mine together. I could not tell you off the top of my head what the ACE part number is. Good old shop and mechanical experience pretty much helped me to determine the right size to get to fix mine up.
Go with BlazerLT's advice, hit the dealership with that number he gave you. You'll be sure to get the right thing from them and it will make your life easier.

Thanks guys... Now if only I could finish installing my remote starter!

**EDIT**
Got the washer from the dealer and I can't believe that I paid $3 for this tiny ring of metal!!!!!

For as long as we had this blazer that clunk was getting on my nerves. It always sounded like something was gonna fall out. Thx for the fix LT. I'll try it this weekend.

I've had same sound on my blazer... only from the driver's side.. after reading this post and watching the movie I went out propped the hood and shook boths sides and sure enough the passenger side is nice and snug and the driver's side has a good 1/8" - 1/"4 'play'... when I get it back from the tranny place tomorrow gonna try the towel trick. but I'm betting that's what the noise is.. and I was sure it was wheel/support related.
thanks BlazerLT

Wished I knew earlier.

That was going to be this summer's car project.. get rid of that rattle /clunk.. always freaked my gf out cause it sounds like it coming from the front axle/supports.. (only happens on 'bumps) So always made her anxious to get in the blazer... in her words : "sounds like the front tires' gonna fall off"

I crammed a bunch of paper towels in the side of the trunk (mines on driver side.. not passenger side tho..) and drove through our pothole laden entrance to our appt complex.. and.. viola.. no rattle!!!!.. Amazing.

now I've just gotta get that washer...

Thanks BlazerLT

On further investigation I don't think that rattle comes from the washer. It uselly makes the clunk noise when you slowly turn the car hard left or right. Never the less I'll replace that washer just in case.

Check the washer first if that isn't it check your ball joints they wear out quickly if not well maintained.
