Default Body Lift/ Body Mount ?ss

I put my BL on a couple weeks ago, and now the rear cab bolts are loose and it is Too Dam Annoying.. The cab basically rocks back and forth. Could this be due to bad body mounts?..

Any inout welcome. Thanks!

Did you get them tight enough? Maybe use some loctite? They shouldnt be coming loose. I know this sounds dumb but did you get longer bolts? Meaning there is enough thread...

The kit should have come with loctite or something similar and then you should have torqued the body/bed bolts to spec. No reason for them to come loose unless something wasn't done properly. Wait your cab rocks back and fourth and your still driving it?!?!

Did you check the bolts dude? Some have longer threads meant for the rear of the cab, and short threaded ones go to the bed. If your cab is rocking take care of it right away

----------

If you cant locate the proper bolts Pull the loose ones and use some thick washers where the bolt head connects to the cab body to stop it from rocking

I guess I shoudnlt have said rocking... It sounds Like it, it does have a little give with the bolts being loose. We did not use the loctite, but since you guys are suggesting it. I will have to pull therm out and try that. Thanks!

I did add more washers to them. I know we used two longer bolts in the front of the bed. Cuz thats what the others had done. Should be the right ones I will try the Loctite.

Went back and put loctite on them, the bolts themselves are tight. But I am having the same problem. Something isnt right and I have no idea what is wrong.. Just know that it is pissing me off beyond belief.

try to see if you can imitate the road movements by hand, stand on the side and try to push the cab, or lift and see if the sound persists. if so there is something loose
