I purchased some new lower rear cab mount bushings or cushions for my
91 Chevy K1500 Pickup with a standard two door cab. The rubber
bushings have what looks like a thin flat plastic ring bonded on one
end. On the other end, there is no plastic ring, but the outer edge of
the bushing has a small fillet or radius.
What I need t know is, which end is up? Do I install the plastic ring
against the frame bracket, or does it go against the round steel
retainer / washer that is directly under the head of the cab mount
Also, I would like to find some bushings that are tougher than the
stock GM bushings. Does anyone know where I can purchase just two
lower polyurethane bushings or is it always necessary to buy a whole
bushing kit for $50.00 or $60 bucks ?
I would appreciate any feedback.
