    i look undermy truck one day i see the body bushing hanging in the balance( just about falling off, i laugh and go aabout driving around for a few months, then i look under again and see NO BODY BUSHING, i say ok, then i get one from a truck at school that has been sitting for a while because it had a bunch of parts laying the in the bed, and i seen some bushings so i grabed them, i get to my friends house i borrow his electric impact (rather powerful) and i go about taking the bolt out, nope, i was rounding it off, and i decided to quit before i broke the bolt or rounded it off /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif, so im just gunna drive it around like that, maybe i will make a bushing of duct tape by tightly raping duct tape around it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif, oh well as for now, im just gunna goto farm and fleet and buy some heavy gear lube and throw it in the rear diff, maybe that will quiet the leaking. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Fix the stuff right, man, you'll appreciate it in the long run. The gear lube may destroy the rear end from insufficient lubrication, and it's certainly not going to stop the leak.

    Duct tape body mount? Come on, surely you know better than that. Get that bolt out of there and fix it right!
