Cab to Body mounts

I bought a '66 F100 on a '79 F250 Camper Special Chassis..

The only issue is the body mounts..She squeeks and squeeks..

The rubber mounts look to be original from the '66 or the '79..

They are shot..But they have wooden shims (I know) under some of the mounts.

My question is.. What mounts (rubber or poly) should I use?

Should there be any "shims" at all?? And if so, made out of what??

Thanks

Re: Cab to Body mounts

Rubber is fine for another 40 or so years.

Shims are a MUST and metal is fine, just use something the diameter of the bushing or the same size as the metal they are touching.

The shims are there so everything sits LEVEL before tightening the body mounts down, and they area also to help align the bet to the body.

P.S. Here's my newest Family member.

His name is Banjo, he is a Mahogany and White Basset, he's 4 months old on this coming Tuesday. Ignore the 14 year old girl getting ready for a school dance....
