    Hey Guys,
    I want to replace the body mount bushings on my '03 PreRunner Double Cab. At Energy Suspensions website, it states in the description "Will fit Standard and Extended Cabs".
    So, I did a chat and asked if they had a kit for the double cab model. I was asked how many mounts were on my truck and I stated 6 (2 for the radiator and 4 for the cab).
    Customer service agent came back a couple of minutes later and stated "mechanic said they should work".
    Before I order and pay $112, can someone confirm if these actually work for the double cab?
    I can't imagine them being different but I don't know.

    Thank you for your help / suggestions.

    Excellent write up from TW Member @penadam that confirmed the question.

    Good Morning Jay! Man, I tried getting some pictures but I can't get any good ones because the rubber part is nearly out of sight. With a flashlight you can clearly see the cracked rubber and it's brittle.
    The biggest issue is I'm trying to correct where the cab and bed don't line up. The drivers side has a much larger gap than the passengers side.

    It is not all that hard to buy the raw material in the diameter you need and cut the thickness you need and drill the hole

    They will not fit. The rearmost mounts in the kit are too short, you need to two the same height as the middle mount. See this thread where I made the mistake.

    @GQ7227
    Jay, I got a little carried away. Went to just remove the bottom piece that secures the turn lights so I can respray it and went ahead and took everything off!
    This provided a great view of the front cab bushings or what some call the radiator support bushings. You can clearly see the rubber appears to be shot.

    Jay, just look for these bolts and follow it down.

    @GQ7227 I forgot to add this picture yesterday. It's called a bumper cushion. I'll add this to my list of things to replace while I've got it all apart.

    Went to the Energysuspension website (home page) and sent an email asking if there was a part number available for the two front bushings (under radiator).
    Explained in detail that the smaller front cab bushings which is supplied with part #8.4107 was a confirmed fit on the double cab.
    I'll update "if" I hear back.

    Good luck. I emailed them twice and never heard back when I asked about getting another set of middle bushings to put in the rearmost position.

    That sucks. I just read your post again.........so the middle bushing (#2) will fit the rear (#3)?

    It sure looked that way. I didn't test fit it in the truck, but I remember the energy suspension 2nd position bushing being taller than the 3rd, and it looked the same height as what (the 3rd) I'd taken out of the truck.

    On the 2nd gens, I know the energy suspension part # is the same.

    Here's the height of the factory 3rd position bushing. Maybe someone can measure the energy suspension ones or a factory 2nd position one.
