If you have OEM type rubber ones then you will need to cut down the steel tubes except for two. The two that don't get cut down go to the front Toe Board mount just under the firewall and use the largest rubber isolator out of the kit to bolt up at the bottom. All other bushing tubes get cut down to within a 1/4" recessed when the bottom rubber isolators are in place so that they can compress down to the 2" washers when tightening them down.



So does that mean if I get like the Daystar kit I don't have to cut ant down?

The poly bushing body mounts do not include or use the steel tubes since they are rigid enough as they are. Your going to feel more drive train and road vibrations with aftermarket poly bushings vs. OEM type rubber bushings.

Also remember that the replacement rubber OEM type mount kits do not include the grille mount.

I used an angle grinder with cutoff wheel, went through the sleeves like nothing. Really wouldn't have been a bad job except that I had already put them in before reading this thread ... so I had to do it all again

also, my kit included the front bushing

I'm using a Daystar kit. They all have the centering ring you speak of, but only one large washer for each mount, so not two on each end of the mount. They did not come with any sleeves. I'll buy the bolts but I'll take a closer look at the instructions before I install. They have pics of each mount, so I'll see if it looks like there's a sleeve installed.
I get the concept without the sleeve you're tightening two soft objects down.

The factory crush sleeves have the top washer formed to them so you only need the one washer on the bottom.
