    anyone ever replaced their cab mounts on their first gen. tacomas?? how much of a pain in the ass is it to do?? a couple of months back,when i replaced my suspension, i noticed under my truck that the driver side cab mount is about shot all to hell. the actual bushings there are just about gone, and when backing up or going forward,especially turning and going over a bump.......i can hear/feel something hitting right under my left foot. i thought it was the cv's popping and getting ready to go out, but the more i look at it.......i believe its the bad cab mount, and when i hit a bump it compresses and hits pretty good.

    i can get some cab mounts from energy suspension for a decent price................and im just wondering what all im looking at as far as replacing the mounts/bushings and how long to expect it will take me,etc. all pros and cons welcome!! appreciate all the info!!

    Not as many as the 98..
    They look like a serious PITA. I should replace the one behind my bumper on the drivers side.

    Like mentioned above, its just like installing a body mount. Have an extra set of eyes with ya, so when you jack the body up, they can be watching to make sure no wires are pulled apart. Should only need to jack the body up a couple of inches, then remove the wasted parts, and insert the new. :)

    Will, did you ever get around to doing this? I've got to do it (soon) and I'm wondering what I'm up against. No mention of it at all in my Haynes manual.
