    The mounts should stay there. The pucks just add to it.

    I need to replace my body mounts also. I'll probley get a body lift while I'm at it. I'm debateing on a 2 inch, or the ORD 1 inch body lift. I'm comming up on body work time pretty soon.

    I did a 2" body lift on mine when i replaced all my body mounts and it went a lot easier than i had expected...only mods i had to do were the fan shroud and shifter linkage extention. Did it myself in about 4 - 5 hours on my burb.

    Definitely replace your body mounts while doing your body lift. I replaced mine when I did my original 1" ORD lift. Got the lift and the poly mounts from ORD. Many of my body mounts were in bad shape. The lift comes with new, longer bolts (duh). Good thing. Some of my body mount bolts were barely holding on!

    I replaced my 1" ORD with a 3" not too long ago and found 4WPW to be the best deal in town.

    You would have to call them and get the pricing. Here is a link to the page in their catalog about their body mounts. That was so long ago and so many $$ ago, I don't recall the price.

    They only make the 1" body lift. I originally went with it to get more tire clearance. After that and fender trimming and still rubbing my fenders, I sold mine and replaced it with a 3" body lift. I am still not a big fan of body lifts, but I think it was a better solution for me than more suspension lift and/or fender hacking and I had to get my tires out of the wheel wells.
