    After putting a 1" ORD body lift on my truck the body is still a little out of align with the bed of the truck on the left rear side by about 3/4". I am going to put a stack of four 1/2" fender washers on the left rear body mount, which should bring the body in alignment with the bed.

    The question I have is since the fender washers are about 1" in diameter smaller than the ORD aluminum body-lift pucks, should I put the washers under the puck, or on top of the puck?

    Did the body not line up right before the body lift? If it is the rear cab mount, I would put washers between the puck and the cab.

    The body did not line up before the body lift. When I did the body lift I replaced the body mounts as well. I thought replacing the old worn out body mounts with new body mounts would bring it back into alignment, but it did not. I guess the GM factory did not do a good job on getting the body alignment straight. I was thinking of putting the washers on top of the lift pucks as well, but I just wanted to ask in case there was something I had not thought of. Thanks.
