Replacing body mount bushings.

Hey gang, just under my truck the other day and saw that all my body mounts are shot! After doing some research I found out that this is a common problem with OEM mounts.
My questions is: what aftermarket brand has everyone had the best success with?
I hear Dorman are good and to stay away from Daystar. Thoughts? How about S&B body mounts? Anyone try them?
Thanks Everyone!

those S&B are what i will try and the included hardware is a plus
i have seen one post about someone who tried them and was pleased I have seen a lot of post about the other options other than OEM and they complain about the size variance vs OEM in many of those post

I too was looking at the S&B but have also been looking at Dorman. A complete set of the Dorman w/hardware are $300 less then a set of S&B. Just curious if the extra $300 is worth it.

I have heard the Dorman are OK but I get a rash just typing that brand name

the S&B should be long lasting the OEM was apparently just too susceptible to ozone or some other element that had it fall apart too soon

not sure Dorman sourced a better product ?

Looking at the S&B for my truck, but the $699 is holding me back -- still I like the silicone rubber idea for the mount material

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Hey Hydro! Same here when I saw that price for the S&B. I was curious too if the silicone rubber will hold up better than just plain rubber. The OE ones are urethane which we all know are crap.

When I get around to doing cab bushings it'll be the S&B bushings
The popping and groaning from the cab pulling into my driveway is really starting to make my eye twitch

Has anyone had Ford replace them under warranty? My truck is at the dealer now. I have the Ford extended warranty. I'm hopping they cover it, if not I'll do it myself and us the S&B for sure.

That’s a good question. Ask the dealer then write back.

I bought the daystar kit for my truck. The bushings are smaller in diameter but seem to be pretty solid. I’ve had them on for about a year so far and they seem to be holding up so far.
