    How do you remove the 2 rear most body mounts? Do you remove the bolt from inside the truck or do you remove the nut from the botom. What size socket do you use either way. I have removed the other 3 ( 1 radiator and 2 cab ) and they are all 3/4 and extremly rusted. I am in the process of getting new bolts and nuts.

    The two rear most are through the bed. The heads of the bolts are tack welded to the floor so you'll need to grind some.

    Some guys remove the fuel tank for better access...I had my tank out when doing the new mounts too. I ground the heads of the bolts off flush and drove the bolts down through the mounts...
