Hell yea....in for the subscription.
Nice when mods enjoy my write-ups...pats on the back are always welcomed lol! I'll clean it up best I can and turn it over, captain.this sounds like it will be a handy thread
we will remove the chit chat post later when your all done adding to this and keep your write up flowing uninterrupted
I feel ya, been on my to-do list for a year now. I didn't want OEM again and I know S&B make a great product, I've been happy with them in the past. I've put off the mounts for a while after finding out the price from ford and other local shops but the weird body noises I get at speed are driving me insane. Was scared to do it myself at first but it looks to be a really easy job. I'll probably have to get some liability disclaimers put in the write up though, lol. My body sags with OEM metal on metal mounts that are on it now. We'll see with S&B.Buy once cry once. Its on my list but moved down it when I looked up the price a few months ago. Thinking about it now I need to look at how much the body to frame will change from the crappy stock ones. I'm trying to plan some rock sliders. I should be ok though as I'd think the new if anything new ones would be a bit taller ,not being smushed and deteriorated.
I haven't been around in a few months so I may have missed your thread on this. Good info there.
See my pics here. The rears were toast.The body lines make me think I have a couple in the rear possibly bad. Thanks guys I appreciate the insight.
I first noticed my body line, between the cab and the bed, was off a little. later on the rear-passenger corner of the cab started banging on the frame when I hit a bump, so I couldn't ignore the problem any longer...The body lines make me think I have a couple in the rear possibly bad. Thanks guys I appreciate the insight.
I'm not going to tell you what you should do, but I used a 4"x 6" block about 15" long and 3-ton floor jack to lift the cab at each mount, and it worked just fine. What you really need to make it all go smoothly is a second set of hands.In reading this thread again Can the cab be lifted with just a floor jack and a block of wood or is there more to it? I can get access to a lift that would probably work best but I have a good jack in my own shop lol.
