Tranny mount

When I had everything apart before, I noticed that the tranny mount looked kinda ratty, but like the dumbass I am I forgot to change it. To change it do I just support the tranny and unbolt it, or should I raise the tranny a bit?

Also, where do I get a new stabilizer stud thing? It's practically stripped in the bottom section that the nut attaches to. One parts store told me to try a dealer, but I would rather spend less money at a parts store.

Thanks,
Sean

Re: Tranny mount

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Ordinarily, you can jack up the tranny enough to remove and replace the rear mount. There is really no limit to how high you can go, just be observant and not damage something as you raise it. The torque arm is real important, so do whatever it takes to restore the stem and the washer stack with the rubber bushings to as close to stock as you can.

Re: Tranny mount

Getting to the trans mount on an 80s CJ will require you supporting the engine and unbolting the skid plate, removing the 6 bolts that hold it to the frame. You will have to unbolt the 2 bolts that hold the trans mount to the plate and the stabilizer arm bolt, then just bolt a new one to the trans and put everything back together. This is a good time to put a poly mount in, they last a lot longer than the stock rubber ones.

Re: Tranny mount

4WD hardware sells the stabilizer bushings (poly) and the stud you need. I can't find my catalog right now (I think it's at work) but I know the stuff is pretty cheap through them. If you don't have one of their catalogs, go to http://www.4wd.com and request one. They have ALMOST everything you would need, and GREAT service. Good luck
