    Hey guys, so I just did a write up about installing GMT900 rear cab mounts onto my '96 c1500 to help with the ride quality. There was another guy on here that I remember mentioning the swap which got me interested in it, but I can't for the life of me find that thread anymore...so whoever you were, thanks for the suggestion...

    its apparently a fairly common swap among the GMT800 diesel guys, but thought y'all might be interested in it, since I haven't heard of many GMT400's that have done it. here's my write up on it:

    That's great!
    Any idea why it hasn't been done in a reg. Cab?

    I'm not totally sure, its a pretty big mount physically, I think the reg cab might not fit them...its hard to say 'cause I don't have a reg cab to check it out on, but if someone with a reg cab tries it, I'd be very interested in the results.

    Thanks for the write up. I'll be doing this soon.
    Some of my other bushings are bad, so I might as well replace them too.....
