Re: Cab mounts

Hi John the front cab mounts were a rubber "Puck" that was originally about 1/2 to 5/8 thick. with age, it had compressed down to about 1/4 inch. I used 5/8 inch prothane replacements in front, and since they do not compress, I was worried about the cab being level, so I also put them on the back so the cab wouldn't bottom out metal to metal. the cab is not very thick where the springs make contact, so be sure to put a thick washer to keep the spring from wearing a hole in the cab. I have pics of the setup that I can send put don't know if I can make photobucket work. If I have mislead you in any way I hope someone else jumps on and straightens me out. Good Luck, Jeff
