Body mount sleeve too long?

Post by d_r_1989 » Mon Jul 13, 2020 11:08 pm

Bought some new body mounts but when iv installed them its almost like the sleeve is too long causing the bottom washer to hit it and tighten the nut before the rubber is compressed. Has anyone else found this? Seems i have to shorten the sleeve?

Cut it down bit then I would. personally haven't had that issue with any of the sets I've bought though.
