Hocky Pucks used for body mounts?

I had a guy telling me about using Hockey Pucks....(yes...the ones they use on ice)..as the mounts for the body instead of the factory body mount rubber.....has anyone heard...or tried this before?. He says he has been running these on his jeep and that they do a pretty good job....was just wondering about this....comments anyone?

Re: Hocky Pucks used for body mounts?

I've known people who have tried using hockey pucks for the body lifts/body mounts and they didn't last very long. They aren't made for that kind of abbuse so they will corrode and fall out and break alot quicker then the ones that are ment for it. I've only known one person who has used them and had them work for a while. But thats just my $.02. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Hocky Pucks used for body mounts?

If safety is an issue, then I take issue with the factory mounts, as they appear to have split after having replaced them only a few years ago. The downside I see is that they would likely fail any sort of Motor vehicle inspection. I'm using some between my added roll bar and frame mount to add some give, and they seem fine for this purpose. But, they are not fibre impregnanted like body lift pucks, so they might not be safe if stacked. Urethane body mount kits are inexpensive and would be a better alternative. You can get them in original height, or an extra inch to add body lift.

We've done it to a couple of rigs. The one that sticks in my mind the most was the '77 Chevy we had from '82-96. Had no problems using them to replace the stock mounts. However, we didn't lift it, just replaced the old stuff.

Re: Hocky Pucks used for body mounts?

Is the cost difference significant?

1. A moderate cost is about $60 for a poly set of bushings.
2. Yep, it's a little more than the same amount of hockey pucks.
3. But it's worth it.

Re: Hockey Pucks used for body mounts?

I've seen it.. and i've seen it work.

But... dont stack..

like all body lift/mounts, most of the designs are safe until you start to stack.

A guy I know had the pucks vulcanised into one peice units.
But that's only because the pucks were free and so was the treatment.

Why not just use boat rollers cut to size?

It may be a couple bucks more.. but you'll prolly thankyourself down the road.

Look for pucks that say "MADE IN CANADA" they are much higher quality. They cost more than the "MADE IN CHECH REPUBLIC" ones. The Chech ones are lower quality.
