1. Our particular kit came with six Hyper-Flex polyurethane body mounts, since we were applying this Energy Suspension kit to a single-cab Dodge Ram. One bushing goes at each of the four corners of the frame and two bushings replace the rubber ones under the front radiator support. The bed is hard-mounted to the frame and uses no pliable body mounts. This kit costs about $150, so we’re not talking about a bank breaker here.1.

Energy has been around since we were kids, and they’ve been making replacement Hyper-Flex polyurethane body mounts and suspension bushings to replace worn-out rubber pieces the entire time. We know you understand why suspension points get worn with driving and vehicle use, but why bother replacing your body mounts unless the cab is actually leaning to the side and banging on the frame? For us, it was a body flex issue due to old age. One of our project Dodges is now 17 years old, and the body mounts had never been touched. There was nothing really wrong with them and they still supported the cab on the frame, but they had gotten a little squishy which, allowed a little more cab movement than we wanted. New polyurethane body bushings will give a firmer connection between the frame and the cab and be more resistant to smog, grease, and oil than rubber ever could be. 2. If doing this at home, it’s easiest to do one corner at a time. We used large blocks of wood and a bottle jack to slightly lift the body near each body mount. You only want to lift the cab just enough to squeeze in the new Hyper-Flex polyurethane body bushings.2. If doing this at home, it’s easiest to do one corner at a time. We used large blocks of 3. It’s best to loosen the mount’s bolt before you start raising the jack, and that way you’ll know when the cab starts to separate from the frame and you can remove the upper bushing.3.

The factory body mount bolts are reused and should be torque to the same tightness that the factory recommends. With the new Hyper-Flex mounts in place, the truck’s cab did not float as much, and the overall feel was a little firmer and more responsive.6. The finished product should look like this.
