Need help with rusty body bushings/mounts

I have an 84 cj 7. There is no body on it now. All is in good condition, but some of the body mounts rotted and pulled right out of the frame. Any ideas on how to overcome this?

And for the bushings, i heard of a guy use hockey pucks with holes drilled in them...? Is this a good idea?

I would think that would be kind of a stiff ride? Personally I would go with a set of polyurethane bushings.

Using hockey pucks to save maybe 180$ .... Not a good idea ...

Check my build thread....I believe p4 to see what I did. No new mounts, just repaired the metal. Cost me about $10 to do all of the mounts. Bought a Poly mount kit from 4wd for 44 bucks. Very happy with it so far.
