Rubber Mount Suspension

Unread post by bordoms » Sat Mar 03, 2018 10:39 pm

Im looking for new mounts for a rubber mount rear suspension on m 1969 Dodge Travco. I cant even find pictures of it. It looks like the rear end floats between rubber mounts. There is no springs at all.

Has anyone purchased replacement suspension mounts and installed them?

The Mor/ryde is an aftermarket set up and I have only seen a few pictures with it on Travcos. There were a couple people on the Dodge Travco Facebook gorup that had them. Maybe one of them has changed the rubber spring out. Mor/ryde had a youtube page that shows how to replace the rubber blocks.

I have replaced mine about 10 yrs ago and it was very easy. use never seize when reinstalling so 20yrs from now they will come off easier. mor ride stated that you did not need all the mounts as the new ones are stronger but I replaced them all anyway. if you haven't driven with them yet you will find it takes most of the sway out when YOU pass the big rigs doing 75 mph ! add the air bags to your front axel with about 15-20 lb of air and your love driving the twisty back roads again ! this suspension was installed at the factory (chrys) I believe, as on my original order form it was listed as an available chassis option along with the 70 gal fuel tank.

Mor/Ryde has pictures of the suspension being installed on a small bus Chassis with a diesel. the diesel has a bit more torque than a 318....
