replacing body mounts
 
hey guys, I'm planning on replacing body mounts soon after I graduate from high school in mid-May. I consider step one as spraying them with pb blaster to avoid potential snags, which i have been doing. But I was wondering if anyone had any tips, tricks, helpful info, or the standard way of doing this? thank you !

no tricks, just wrenches, sockets or air gun and a floor jack with a 2x4 to lift up the body. :D

awesome. thanks man

good luck, i haven't seen a yj yet where all body mounts came out without one breaking. are you doin a body lift, or are they that worn out??

do yourself a favor get new ones and cut the old ones with a torch

i don't know if i'd jump right to that. if you've sprayed them, and when you do it, work them back and forth a few turns at a time, most will come out ok, the rear two mounts are the ones that break. life is easiest if you get them out all in one piece.

no, i'm not gonna lift it. i like the stock height. ya, theyre just old and just F'ed. im gonna use this whole can of pb blaster before i mess with it, hopefully nothing bad will happen, but ive learned from experience that something always goes wrong LOL. i'll let you know what happens. thanks guys!

Dave...You just need to come out west! Pulled my OEM's last year and didn't even need the Blaster.

:D:D:D Feel for us, it's a brisk 56 degrees today and windy. But headed to 80 for the weekend. Just might have to pull the top off for summer.

yep, you suck. its 45 and rainy, how's that. at least i'm not a fair weather jeeper, i didn't put my top on for two years and drove everyday in the midwest. now i'm older, and not stupid.
