SOURCE: HOW DO I REPLACE CAB MOUNT BUSHINGS

Cab mount bushings are a royal pain. From experience ypu may as well get new bolts and some nuts to fit while you are ordering the bushings. Also get new plates that mount against the bushings. It's not very common for any of these parts to be reusable. The front mount bolts may come out with a socket and strong arm but make sure you are using a 1/2" drive socket not the common 3/8. I believe the socket is 19mm. If the bolts break or won't unscrew you will have to cut a hole in the floor to get at the welded nut. There are 2 layers in the floor where the cab mounts are located. Measure from 2 access points to get an approximate location for the hole.

You can almost guarantee that you will have to cut holes in the floor to get the rear ones out. You will also have to remove the seat to get enough room to work on them.

Once you have to old ones out a small hydraulic jack and a block of wood will lift the cab enough to take the old mount out and install the new one. Use the block to support the cab when you jack so you don't dent the floor. Do them in pairs so the cab doesn't end up crooked on the frame. You can expect this to be an all day job. Hope this helps.

2000 GMC Sonoma 4x4 Has a constant loud Chirp that happens every few seconds whether idling or driving. I can not seem to locate where it is coming from but sounds like right under me in the drivers seat....


try this.. with the vehicle off..open the drivers door with the window down..sit in the seat and bounce up and down in the seat..listen for your squeak/chirp..I am thinking its either the seat mounts or the body mounts under the cab..you can spray wd 40 on the rubber cab mount bushings if you dont hear the sqeak when you bounce on the seat.. get out and grab the door by the far end of the window frame and shake the cab upand down.. you can use petroleum jelly on the seat rails under the seat for a lubricant..dont use regular grease because if you do..and get in with nice clothes on(and catch the bottom of your jacket under the side of the seat)..eeewww...if there is no sqeak, try starting..if you hear it now..its either mounts or a loose belt..

How to change cab mount bushings


Remove Cab bolts and lift body with lift. If lift is not accessible then remove mount bolts on one side and jack with block of wood to reduce body damage possiblity (Use body line). Jack body just high enough to remove bushing. Use caution watch hands and avoid pinch points whenever possible.

Help replacing the front struts on 89 VW Cab


You'll need to remove the upper strut mount nut. Unbolt the 2 bolts from strut to the wheel hub. Remove the strut unit from the car. You'll need a coil spring compressor to compress the spring to unscrew the strut bushing, remove the strut mount and remove the spring from the strut, install the spring to the new strut and reassemble. You'll be better off to get the whole strut, instead of the replacement cartridge, it's often hard to remove the old one from the old housing. Don't forget to replace the strut mount and strut bushing.

Rotton body mounts


Are you taking about the rubber mount bushings? You can get replacements at your local Dodge dealer, or you could opt for a 2" body lift which comes with new mounts.
