LMC Body mounts

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Dec 17, 2001.

    Has anyone bought the LMC body mount kit? I am thinking about doing away with my body lift and may buy a new kit from LMC. Just looking for maybe someone who bought one for an opinion on the quality. The complete kit for a Burb runs $230. I am not looking for the poly stuff, just put in quality stuff that will last.

    I haven't used any, but it sure looks like the real deal in the catalog. The complete set for a Blaze is $299....Yeow!

    I bought the kit for my 78 Jimmy and it was a mix of factory parts and some foreign stuff. I thiink that the front bushings were from Taiwan or somewhere like that. Still good quality. The thing that I liked about the kit is it had everything you need to change out the mounts. I think it was money well spent.

    i got a kit for my 71, it's still in the bodyshop so it wont be a while before i try it out. the pieces did look good quality. they were made in INDIA. it seems that these days most rubber products are made there. I bought a set of motor mounts from them too. later i got some other motor mounts from NAPA for my 72 and they were exactly the same product. both sets were made in INDIA.

  8. Great, I am trying to fix something that should have been done a long time ago. When i bought the burb it had or has a 3" homemade body lift and the guy took out most(not all) of the stoick stuff so it rides kind of stiff !!

    Why would you not want the poly stuff? Cheaper than stock usually, lasts longer, binding isn't a problem like it is with poly in other locations (control arms, etc) and tying the frame to the body better will result in less sheet metal movement, and frame flex. Hands down poly.

    Hey Dye, How stiff is the polyurethane? Everyone says it's stiffer but I know poly can be made to a wide variety of durometer ratings.
