Anyone replaced cab mount bushings?


Recommended Posts

My next project is going to do something about my cab and bed not lining up correctly, the cab seems to be sagging toward the rear and it makes it look like my truck is bowing, the guy at the body shop checked it out, did some quick measurements and didnt think my frame was bent, but he did just reach up there and pull some rubber out where the cab mounts to the frame and said that if I replaced the bushings, it should line right up with the bed and look right, so I think im going to do that in the near future, I'm just wondering if anyone on here has done that before and if there are any tips or things to look out for....I'm wanting to do a body lift as well, probably alot easier to do it all at once, any help is appreciated, I just want my truck to look like it should, with the chrome trim straight as an arrow

Sorry, I do not have any tips for you but am glad to have an idea of what causes this problem. I have noticed several older body style trucks that look like they are bowing in between the cab and bed...I guess it makes sense if the rear cab mounts were worn out the cab would start to lean towards the bed giving it that warped look. Let us know how it goes when you do it!
