    Ok, I'm back to working on the K5's bodymounts. I got all of them loose and some on one side the new uppers are in. Problem is the lower one on the very back. I have the rear bumper and tailgate off. Do I need to drop the gas tank to get the lower mount on in the very back? I can't see any other way to get the lower mount in the frame. It is a 90 K5 if that makes any difference. TIA.

    I am pretty sure that you are going to have to drop the tank. Here's a pic I took of my truck a few weeks ago. That big hole in the top of the frame behind the spring hanger is where the rear body bushing goes.

    Yep, I know where it goes. I was just hoping I was missing something and it could be done without dropping the tank. :(

    The weird "bracket" that is in there can't be pulled without dropping the tank. It's the piece the bumper supports bolt to.
