Finally got around to replacing the front body mounts. I only did the fronts because the four in the rear look fine. I think it's because I have mudflaps?

The front body mounts: Driver side had lost its nut. Passenger side nut backed off the bolt, then seized. The front end was held to the frame with hopes and dreams and rust. Went through a couple 18 tpi blades.



Did the rust inhibitor and painted before install.



It was pretty nasty looking and soft.



All done. May have to back the nut off a bit. Think I'm squeezing it too hard?

The front end still has a clunk. Next up: Sway bar bushings and endlinks, although they don't feel bad at all?

Even after all this..


...the clunk is still there.

Spring insulator maybe?

Labor day weekend with new wheels/tires.


Should have got the springs and flip kit installed, but was stalled by a lack of tie-rod fork...
