    Does anyone have a number for universal mounts that fit my 79 Caprice?

    JC Whitney has some but until I pull the old ones, I'm not sure which are the right ones.

    Anyone replace theirs?

    Hi there.

    From the information that I've gathered, There are no direct replacements available for the 1977-96 B cars and wagons. I could be wrong here.

    I'd look and see if you can locate body mounts for a 1973-77 GM midsize A body and the 1977-93 C body cars.

    I used the Energy Suspension kit for a 91-96 B body, the light duty version. The light duty version does not have all the captured lower bushings like my '77 had, but I had enough good ones left over from the original bushings that I was ok. They did not come with washers or sleeves, tho, so if those are rusted out, you're kinda up a creek.

    Washers and sleeves can be gotten. The good poly bushing is the issue. Even stock new would be better.

    Thanks
