1987 k5 body mounts

So I was thinking of doing the body mounts as one of my next projects. I know after 30 years they're probably worn and anything to help the ride is a plus.... And it's a reasonably inexpensive mostly grunt work project. I thinking I'm going to run into a problem with it, so I need the benefit of yalls experience. While replacing a section of the floor boards recently I ran into two spots where the body was spot welded the frame. I know I need to lift one side of the body at a time to do the mounts, so how many spots like that am I going to run into?

Re: 1987 k5 body mounts

Where were the spot welds? There shouldn't be any spot welds body to frame. Body is independent from the frame. I will be replacing body mounts this next week and can confirm that if you like. If you were replacing floor section in the front you might have thought the floor spot welds that attach the floor to the cab bracing , that the cab braces was the frame but its not. They do look similar. If you look in one of my last posts you will see the cab brace that is attached to the body mount, it run parallel to the frame that looks the same shape.
