buick man Posted June 10, 2015 Share Posted June 10, 2015 Any collective know how regarding how one goes about installing the upper frame body rubbers with the body still on the frame. The bottom ones are easy. I have disconnected everything exhaust system out, transmission and carb linkage, everything but the steering shaft all the while in the process doing my under body / frame rehabilitation work and thought replacing the body mounts may be a good idea since they look like dry rye bread. Has anyone done this and if so how did you go about it ? The problem is one would have to lift the body up to free the upper rubber mount enough to get the mount's neck out of the metal frame perch it sits into and the only accessible means would be at the rocker panel bases. I suppose another option would be to support the body lightly at these bases with a slight lift and then saw/hack the upper ones out by hand including any chisel work when necessary, then when completing installing a new upper mount, repositioning the lift and repeating the process. Of course I would not want to do this unless there is a tried and true method of accomplishing this that someone can attest to. Any input would be appreciated.
