I just noticed my 59 CJ5 that is bone stock, has its body directly mounted to the frame. Other than one thick (around 3/4 thick) rubber disc shaped body mount at the very front center there are literally zero other rubber bushings anywhere else between the body and frame. Which leads me to my question. Has anyone purchased the reproduction original rubber square pads such as these from walcks that say part number A-4416 http://walcks4wd.com/body-mount-rubb...cj-models.html and what are your opinions on these and are they holding up or falling apart?
In my FSM it says I need these they are called liner, body sill, 1/8" thick in my FSM 10 required and it also says I need one Liner, Body Sill, 1/4" thick part number 670540
And note both these part numbers my book says I need, are different than the numbers walcks lists me as needing. also walcks claims I need 12 which my book says I need 10 of the one number and 1 of the other.
Or would I be better to buy this kit from daystar that says made in usa http://www.daystarweb.com/productdet...?productID=309. im pretty sure they would arrive black in color and I have no idea what shape or thickness they are since im nearly positive this is not a picture of the actual part.
Probably the main reason I got to looking and realized my body mount bushings are missing is going downhill when decelerating and hitting a certain RPM range I get a really annoying noise that I am thinking is my body rattling on the frame but its really hard to pinpoint but the sound is definitely coming from rear of jeep somewhere. Thanks everyone for the opinions on which body mounts would be better or maybe suggestions on something different but better.
