Hi Guys,
i was under my '87 last weekend, and some (maybe all) of the body mounts are really badly deteriorated. I do not have the space or knowledge to lift the body off the frame. Is it possible to replace one at a time, or no way? Thanks.

I just got my new mounts today. Im about to tackle that myself. Ive been told by my buddy who owns a body shop that you can do it one at a time. He has done it before. Good luck.

I have replaced body mounts in the past one at a time. Take your time and it can get done. Hopefully you won't have to realign the doors and fenders when done.

You will have to loosen all the mounts on one side and then the other side. The sagged mounts won't give you enough room to slide the new thick one in if you only loosen one.
