Body Lift

I purchased a 1980 CJ-7 project about a year ago. When I finally got around jacking the body/tub up to removing the 4" lift plastic body mount bushings, some of them fell apart (dry rotted/seriously cracked/broken) in my hands. A couple were even missing. Bottom line, I need to get ideas on what I should go back with. I am unsure also if there is a height difference at the various body-to-frame attach points. The grill to frame attach point is one that is missing due to the front clip already removed when I got the project. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer!!

A quality kit from a reputable bushing manufacturer like Prothane or Energy Suspension. 4WD or Morris 4X4 should have what you need in stock and ready to ship out. Both will come with instuctions for which bushing goes where.

I personally hate the look of body lifts.

Stock rubber bushings will give you 40+ years of service.....minus the vibration poly bushings would give you.
