    I need parts of the body bushings off of a K5 or pickup. I have the cup and bushing for the upper portion of the body mount. What I need is the Donut ring that mounts on the underside of the frame. I don't need the big washer just the rubber grommet. I thought I could modify the extra cup bushing to make them work but they lack the steel support in them and are a little too large for the bottom washer. I have one so I need 5 more. I will post a pic later as I am having technical difficulty with this stupid software......

    They should be the same off of a Suburban right? I'm parting out an '85 'burb and cutting the body off this week. I can have them ready to go by next Monday.

    They should be the same for the Burban as well as a pickup. Here are some pics I just took of the one I have. Just met me know what the trouble is worth and I will get it headed your way.

    As quoted above, don't reuse rubbers, get urethane mounts. They will last longer.

    I have a bunch of the steel washers/cups/thingies for the mounts to sit on and fasten to. Let me know how many you need and what year of rig you have.

    If he doesn't come through I will let you know.

    Reason I am not going with the poly body mounts is this is a real tight budget build. Not that I am cheap or anything but I have to date a little under 500 in the whole truck. I don't want it to be a money pit, hence re-using the old ones I can dig up from other trucks. After a year or 2 of hard wheeling it, I really see it turning into the buggy route anyways.
