Need help with bodymount replacements

Postby hippovan [OP] » September 10th 2020, 11:28pm

Hi everyone,

I just changed the position 3 body mount. Not sure if I did this properly. Is it normal that that the bottom pushing is as squished as the previous one? Did I torque it to tight? I yet have to fix the front support for postigion 1 body mount, that will probably help.

Also, I used red threadlocker instead of blue, and I'm afraid this might be a problem in the futur (or the next owner). Although, I think the body mounts will outlast my 2002 Astrovan..


Old, space between subframe and upper bushing. Squished lower bushing
New, slightly smaller space between subframe and upper bushing. However, squished lower bushing.
