    So I sold my 09 2500HD gasser and bought an 04 2500HD duramax that is lifted 6". I kept the mount from the last truck since the frame is the same. Well I was looking at it today and noticed the mounts wont fit because of the added parts to lower the torsion bars with the lift to keep the drive line level.. has anyone ran into this and found a successful modification for the mount?

    If I remember today I'll grab some pictures of my truck so you can see what was modified to fit with the lift.

    Easy mod. I'll try to find pics of mine on a couple of trucks I sold. Basically just cut the ears off the back of the mount, reweld them at a 90* angle and drill a hole and run the bolt horizontally through the drop bracket/subframe.
