    I got the new poly body mounts installed on my Jimmy. They didn't change anything at all. Maybe a little more vibration but I really can't tell. They did add about 1/4 inch of height though. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I found they firmed my truck up. Not ride harshness, it just felt like a tighter truck after the poly mounts went in.

    I noticed it firmed up a little. My original rubbers were not as bad as I thought but they still need replacement before I get my new 6 inch suspension. The firmness dramatically increased when I installed the 3 inch body. That's beacause the body bolts were loose.

    I guess it depends on how bad the mounts were...mine were really shot so the new mounts were a big improvement. I regained 1/2"-3/4" of height...

    Wow. I guess mine weren't that bad. I was expecting at least a half inch gain and it was only about a 1/4 inch gain.
