CJ body mount question

quick question about the body mounts. I have owned my 84cj7 for a few years now and the metal piece had always gone on from the bottom. I am in the process of building a homemade metal body lift that is welding to the frame and I am going to use the stock rubber mounts on top of it.

Pontiac is telling me that the metal piece is suppose to go through from the top... which is it? Its my understand that the rubber mount goes through the frame from the top, than the smaller piece from underneath. Than where does the metal washer thingy that slides through the mount go?

Thanks.

Re: CJ body mount question

Are you talking about the split sleeve that goes through the mount, then the bolt goes through it? It's easier to install it from the bottom as it will most likely fall through if there is no bolt to hold it in place.

Re: CJ body mount question

yeah, the metal sleeve that goes through the mount. However it has like a washer welded to the end of it.

Thanks Leve,

But that still doesn't answer my question about the metal sleeve.. Or I can't see it in the picture.. What if I ask it this way, does the cj body sit directly on the rubber or is there a metal washer or something there?

Thanks.

Re: CJ body mount question

1. Here's the order (from the bottom up) [*] Bolt[*] Split Washer[*] Flat Washer[*] Lower half of bushing (with shoulder)[*] Metal Sleeve[*] Upper Bushing.
2. If you've got a fiberglass tub, put 3"X4"X3/16" plate,
3. Between the top of the bushing and the tub,
4. To spread the load out.
5. Otherwise the metal tub sits on the bushing.

Thanks Leve,

My metal sleeve has a "washer" welded to it. But I think you answered my question, There is nothing between the body and the upper bushing.. They must be different that the yj and tj's cause they put metal between the body and the bushing...

Thanks for your input.

Re: CJ body mount question

It's been 10 years since I did my body lift but I do remember that my sleeves had the washers welded to them and they went between the body and original rubber mount. I can't verify the others but I can see the two front mounts and there is a washer between the lift and the body. This doesn't mean that it's correct though.
