    Having some bumpers custom made for me, and when we pulled the rear bumper we noticed a worn out body mount. Anyone have any suggestions on which body mounts to go with?
    Thanks.

    what he said. don't get the aftermarket rubber ones. they don't make them like they used to. I had mine "sitting" for 2yrs and they rotted. the old ones looked better. I just wend out and bought the poly ones.

    ARQ.

    If you've got the time to look, there are still some NOS original rubber body mounts out there. I've got a set sitting in a cardboard box that I've had for a couple years, minus the rad support mounts. Wanna guess which mount I just ruined?

    stretch67...you say the colored one's squeak? I just got a set and they came red. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif When they list them for sale do they specify black or colored? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif Don't want squeaks.

    There is a letter at the end of the part # that is for color. Something like 'B' for Black and 'R' for Red.
