    i need some advice on body rubber?, the fenders are out of line with the doors and i know i could put in a hinge kit, but the body mounts look like crap, should i replace them before i deal with the doors in case they are not the problem. are the energy suspension sets good?, if so, how much should i expect to spend on it?

    Yes, you should replace the old rubber. I used the energy brand and love it. I can say it made my whole rig feel way more solid. The black color is said to have polygraphite impregneted into the mounts to help with squeeking. I paid 100bucks for my kit but that was in 95. I would replace all the bolts too while you have them out. Don't over tighten the mounts, poly doesn't like to be squezzed.
    Good Luck
