Re: Body mounts need help

Loosen ALL body mounts, remove the bolts wherever required. Place a length of 4x4 between the jack and the body. Lift only one side at a time. Lift VERY SLOWLY and be certain to CONSTANTLY check for any wires, cables, hoses, etc. binding up. Lift only as much as necessary to replace the blocks. Then lower slowly, and tighten all bolts.

Good Luck!

I agree.
That's the way I did it when I changed my mounts.

Ditto. Done the same for the middle and back ones for mine. Seems like you would have some problems with the back two, but the body cab sure lifted a lot further than i thought it would. Anyways, good luck.

If it hurts, soak it in cider!
