Body mount replacement questions
So I need to replace the body mount on my 2005 Supercab, its the back right one.
I've got a Dorman replacement coming tomorrow and have sprayed the mount and bolt head with Kroil. It doesn't look to rusty, just the rubber is rotted enough that it failed state inspection.
It seems like it shouldn't be too hard to replace but I'm wondering if I need to loosen any of the other body mount bolts to replace the rear one?
Or should there be enough flex in the body that I can just use some wood blocks and a floor jack and swap the mount without touching any other mounts?
I'll have a better idea when the part comes tomorrow, but when you spin the bolt up in the cab, what keeps it from spinning on underneath at the frame mount? I didn't see any place to put a wrench underneath.
