    Not sure how to tell 100%. but OE uses .125" thick steel and I've heard repops are thinner....very likely 3mm thick since they're stamped overseas, which would be .118". As for the end cushions, you can send me a PM (conversation).

    Taken some measurements with my HF caliper....I get about .110" and that's measured at the lower non used looking bolt hole. Compared it to my AMD front bumper and it appears the AMD is all so slightly thicker.
