I bought some new cab mounts for my '87 Chevy p/u.
They are an aftermarket item and are different from the originals. (The original had a mushroom shaped steel shoe)They only consist of the upper and lower rubber bushings, the upper with a steel insert and plate cast into the rubber. The bottom bushing is only a ring of rubber which obviously requires a retaining washer. I'm wondering if I can reuse the original washer, and how much the lower rubber is supposed to collapse? Is it designed to fold over on itself? (This frame off project has gone on so long that I can't recall how the thing looked when I tore it apart.) Any help would be appreciated as I may get stuck in town tonight due to bad weather, leaving me a window of opportuniny. (for assembly that is)
