    I installed Daystar mounts on mine. The instructions were pretty clear, though. The kit replaces the original square mounts with the round mounts, so don't worry about the fact that the new ones are all round. What problems are you having? Do the instructions indicate 1st postion, 2nd position, etc?

    So far on prices this is what I found:

    ORD $95
    Energy Suspension $80

    How much do the Daystar's run for? Any difference's in the diff. kit's?

    well it went shitty I didn't get the body mounts done because I was to busy fixing the steering column and trying to figure out why the engine wouldn't fire up.

    Don't know if this will help but take a look at the lmc catolog and see if you can match them up that way just my 2 cents-later mike

    I'd say, as long as you aren't doing a body lift, match them up, using the originals, in the stock location, to match with the new ones, or as close as possible, since stock old ones are probably a bit thinner than new.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?

    I would match lem up but I am missing some of the originall ones. I am missing the rubber portion and the steel washet that was under the bolts. I E-mailed prothane but I don't think I will get a response right away so I will call them in the morning and try to get some info.

    My bushings that are in my kit look nothing like those and I had already looked at them. I called prothane today and the tech department said I can't help you with this, that is an old kit and we never broke down the install pics back than like we do know. I am going to try and return them today and order some from another shop or ord.
