Just did mine. I can say i am very impressed a large truck can ride like this. HUGE change on my truck, that wasn't that bad to start with i didn't think. Easy to swap, decent price for the uppers especially. The lowers i think could be ignored maybe and use the originals but who knows. Worth the $ i spent either way. Very pleased with GM on this one.

So in your opinion is the new bottom mount the same as the original bottom mount? I am thinking about ordering only the uppers but I would like to confirm that the bottom mounts are the same as the original.

thanks

The lowers are a different thickness and durometer. Get 'em both.

And, if it hasn't been said recently. NO AIR TOOLS ARE TO BE USED, ESPECIALLY FOR DISASSEMBLY. You tear the nut outta the body and it's on you, not I.

This is where GM Parts Direct loses me:

*25994881 All CUSHION 1 $30.42 2 $60.84 $39.26 $0.00 $60.84

*25791032 All CUSHION 1 $23.57 2 $47.14 $30.42 $0.00 $47.14

*15854745 All RETAINER 1 $2.61 2 $5.22 $3.36 $0.00 $5.22

Shipping & Processing & Handling: $28.86

Total: $142.06

THIRTY BUCKS to ship these? That is warmed over horse bologna. They had me until that last line. Now, I'm shopping.

Have you guys tried buying directly from your GMC or Chevy dealers. Back in March I printed out the prices from GM Parts Direct and ask the parts guy if they could match these prices and said he couldn't match them and I said I guess I will order from GM Parts Direct. I have been buying from the dealer some parts for the last 6 years and he said he can come close to the prices I had printed out. I got a kick ass deal from them because they also have wholesale pricing if you ask them for better pricing without the overpriced shipping charges. I will look tomorrow for the reciept and tell you what I actually paid per each piece and it might have been about $1 or $2 more for each piece, so just ask them what they can do for you with wholesale pricing.

I got them in today but have a question on the instal. I assume you loosen all the body mounts then jack up the cab somehow but where are you guys doing this? Do you think it will improve the ride down bumpy dirt roads?

OK, got my new rear body mounts installed this evening. I used a small hydraulic jack, and a 14" 4x4 to raise the cab. Install was pretty easy, even for an old fart like me. The worst part was it had already gotten dark, so I had to use a flashlight under there to see what I was working on.

I threw those little plastic 'cone' things away. They looked like they were there to assist the union assembly worker in finding the hole! We don't need no stinkin plastic guides!

Now for the road test up I-5. I also have the Sulastics also, which helped " a little" but not $300 plus worth.

Since we're on the subject, the worst stretch of road I have found is I-40 going thru Oklahoma City. Yes, much worse than So Calif freeways! Any other "bad" stretch of roads to report?
