Ya, the mounts are stupid expensive, i replaced all 4 with oem parts. NOTHING was easy about it, i needed my impact gun to hammer the bolts out, and they put the gun on its knees, and its got 700lbft or breaking force. after that i had to burn the mounts apart with the torch. I had acess to all the tools at the shop i work at, and it was still a pita Dont give in tho, get in there and show them mounts whose boss.

Ight thanks man, The schools shop has all the tools ill need, just about finished my motor swap in it. I thought id get the bracket and fix that problem next, maybe while its off throw in a 3 inch body lift but id have to run that through the teacher the trucks been in there for over a month and hes probably sick of seeing it. ahahah, That cab mount looks really bad with it pretty much collapsed and my truck sitting a little twisted.

ya, take the bolts out if ya can, if not, there cheep, like 2 bucks or somthing, watch it tho, the dealership i delt with had one bin location number for both the front and rear rubber parts, it took a month and three dealerships befor i got al lthe parts. Juss support the cab, take the weight off the mount and burn that puppy out with a torch, have an eye out for anything that shouldnt be on fire tho, like fuel lines, break lines that stuff

Holy smokes thats a good deal. Dealers rip you off soooo much, probably best to cancel the order and get those wouldn't it? I think so... They look to be good and strong.

You guys are spending way too much money on this.

I bought myself a piece of 1/4" x 6" x several feet long steel. I cut it up and welded up a new bracket. It cost about 15 bucks worth of steel and will take 300+ years to rust through the primed and painted 1/4" steel.

To get the old ones off, I didn't even bother with the bolts and/or rivets. Just get out the grinder, sawzall, hammer, torch, splitting maul, etc, and beat those suckers off. It took me about 4 hours to fabricate the new bracket, get the old one off, and install the new one. I just reused the old bushing (took some sawzalling to get it apart) and I installed a new grade 8 bolt.

Now the cab is solid as anything.
