    Mine aren't stock, but are between 1.25 and 1.5 inches. I know they don't recommend using poly bushings on fiberglass but I'm sure it's been done before. I used a softer rubber material that came with my kit. It consisted of a couple of sizes used to level the body out
    You are welcome to swing by and take measurements if you'd like.

    John is absolutely right, you don't want to use poly. My floor had distortion, cracks and body mounts smashed throught the floor....

    Get the rubber stick from 4wd hardware.... I even put steel plate on top that was larger than the rubber to disperse the weight....
