    What polyurethane body mounts do you guys recommend? I'm not doing a body lift, just replacing the original mounts.

    I got a Energy Suspension kit and have no compaints about the quality of the kit. Now I will have a chance to test out their customer service because I lost a mount on my last trip (I am susprised I still have all my teeth after that road). I used 2 nuts (regular and all steel lock nut) on the bolt for the rad. support mount (along with all the rest) and the stupid thing still came loose. I lost the lower washer, sleeve, and lower mount[​IMG]. Now I just need to find some time during the week to call them.

    I have the Energy Suspension mounts also and I have not had any problems with them. i replaced them only a year ago but so far I don't really notice any wear.

    Have you guys noticed more stiffness or anything when you switched? I have considered this as well, I have not looked at mine but I would guess they are the original rubber.

    I pulled a body lift and put the energy suspension kit in mine also. The only thing I didnt like about the kit is it doesnt have any body bolts. I spent the good part of 2 days looking for zinc coated, grade 8 bolts and nylon locking nuts and washers. Mine were in for about a years and a half before I started my frame off restoration. When I pulled them out they looked like brand new. All I had to do was wipe them off with WD40. I love mine and would recommend them to everyone!

    Bought mine from Prothane and bought all new hardware from LMC. I did notice the cab is stiffer and a little more road noise coming from the frame. But I like it.
