    ok out of my 14 body mounts only 10 have bolts threw them. i drove the suburban out to henderson, NV and back today (maybe 30mi total at 45-75mph) and when i got back, one of the pucks was almost falling out! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/mad.gif and i could push it back in by hand. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif this can't be safe. has anyone else had this problem? i'm definetly drilling and putting bolts in this week.

    thats the reason they keep coming out, you have to drill a hole and put a bolt through it. Just tightening the ones in front and behind those aren't enuf to hold those in, especially when doing any kind of light or heavy flexing.

    If you look at my bodylift pics you can see that I still haven't put those pucks in. I didn't want to loose them. So far I haven't had any problems without them in. I think I do more off road than most Suburban owners.
