Looking to do the rt front.. but looks like they all need new rubber or poly.

Are the cab/body mounts bolts welded in or do they spin?

Are the bolts hardware/ home store ok?

I do have; nut splitter (works great!) Sawzall, and or cutoff wheel grinder.

I don't have; the energy desire or wish to even do this

These ok? Prothane 6-106-BL Black Body and Cab Mount Bushing Kit - 12 Piece https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003AVWYPK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_JecACb0JBVB1Q

If I understand correctly. The bolts spin. There is a plug filling the hole to access the top side bolt head. The bottom is a nut, large washer, and spacer combined. I ended up cutting a few apart due to rust welding the pieces together. If you use a zip disc wear a full face shield and neck protection....don't ask how I know.

They are easy to drill/resize. They also make really good jack stand insulators to go between the frame and jack stand to keep from bending the pinch welds on unit body cars, or keep from scratching the frame on others. I haven't made any body mounts yet but will report how once I've done it.

The duff kit comes with the hardware which at this point you will probably need. Isolators are softer than hockey pucks, I wouldn’t even mess with them.
