Well last night got around to changing my body mount rubbers.

The old ones were *****. And I mean *****. The new ones are about 2cm longer at least! The rubber was worn away that bad on some, I thought the holes maybe fubar, but only 2 were ovaled out about 2mm, but enough to move a bit...

On way home, and this morning as you turn corners, driveways where it used to bang and clunk, not a sound!

Well worth doing.. 2 hours and done.

Did you have to lift the body off the chassis? How is it done?

Truckster,
Did you buy Nissan ones? Is there an aftermarket alternative? How much for the set? Do you know if there are the same number of mounts on a shortie?

Genuine Nissan ones.
I figure they lasted 12+ years this time and there was 12 of them, and around $400ish which aint bad really.

NFI on available aftermarket, doubt it, they are pretty individual things, I think there would be a few less on teh shorty.

2 at radiator, 2 at a pillar, 2 B Pillar, 2 under rear seats, 2 inside the rear door. and 2 under the body in the middle of the cargo area... That LWB...

I know it's the cheap way out but all I did was place a thicker washer on the rubber and retightened them a number of years ago and the noise is all gone. The rubber just compresses. I know it's not the ideal option but the cheapest.

Truckster,

Do you think I may need to do this on the Prado one day?

I have a feeling (and Oh what a feeling!) that the answer may be ...NOT!

I used to own a 1997 Prado and Toyota changed them for nothing after 60,000 km (warranty) you have pick a good 4wd.Take it back to Toyota for major servicing they should change out any new mod's when thay come out.
