    I'm new to the forum so excuse the ignorant question, but. I just got my Jimmy ('77) and was looking under it and noticed that almost all of the body mounts are new. Except the back pair. The new ones are about 2" tall and cylindrical and the last pair by the gas tank are square, less than 1" tall and quite old. Are these normal or did someone do a body lift and not do the back pair?? Thanks

    Sounds like a body lift to me. Possibly a home fabricated kit [​IMG].

    Well, the body mounts are different height for different sections. Lets put it this way. You have 5 sections (for body mounts) on your K5. 2 body mounts per section. Section 1 is in the front under the radiator. Section 2 is under the driver and pass floor board. Section 3 is under the front bed. Section 4 is under the middle of the bed, and Section 5 is like right under the TailPan (that holds the hinges of the tailgate). Section 5 is the hardest to the replace, so maybe the person slacked off on that. Anyways, the body mounts at Section 3 are the largest or should I say, longest mounts. The other areas are different sizes. I don't think you could put a 2" body lift on all four sections and not the rear section (5). B/c that truck won't be riding on the two rear body mounts. Plus, if you do have a body lift, the blocks would have to sit on top body mounts anyways. If I remember correctly, most besides the body mounts at Section 3, most of the others should be similar in length. The Section 5 ones are definately the smallest I think. Hope this helps.

    Is there space between the bottom of the mount and the floor, so that the mount is too small? If there isn't I wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks for the replies. The reason I got on to this was I noticed a crack developing on one of my rocker panels.
