    Body mount bushings?

    Not sure if thats what they're called, but I need the dimensions of the metal tube/sleeve that goes inside the rubber mounts, that the bolt then goes through. I bought a kit from Energy Suspension but it does not include these parts, and when I removed the old ones years ago, they were rusted so bad that I threw them away. Also Need to know the size and length of bolts to use. Thanks, Joe.

    i used 1/2 black pipe when i did mine and big fender washers, i beleive there 1/2 inch bolts, and i dont remember the lenghts, i think i measured the bushings and made them just shorter
    If its a mechanical device i can fix it

    OK cool, that helps alot. I was thinking for the small amount needed I might get some stainless tubing the right size then I don't have to worry about rust if I ever need to take them off in the future.

    If your in the Hamilton area you can stop by I have them new (NOS) and you can see what they are supposed to look like, they are two different sizes for a CJ, assuming your talking about a CJ Id even let you measure them up...
