Anyone have experience with them. I can’t understand why some lift pucks are 1 15/16” others are 2 15/16” and the body mounts themselves are about 2 1/4”? So none match up at all. I would think that you would make the lift pucks the same diameter of the body mounts.

I'll have to check but if I remember correctly some of the body mounts are lower than others depending on their location on the frame. But it's been years since I have done a body lift.

Hmmmm, that is strange. I would say if you have 2 larger ones they go in the front and if you have 4 larger ones, front and rear. Just thinking that way because those locations have a larger surface area on the body..

As I worked through them, I agree, smaller pucks are for rear 4 mounts. Those fit perfect. The larger pucks do look a little silly on top of the smaller mounts, but it does spread the contact patch on the body over a larger area.
