    GM's parts diagrams show a wedge shape spacer in with the mount, like #4 on this -



    Will I need to buy that wedge thing, GM 22167000, or will it be in with the mounts depending what I buy? These look slightly different shape than those pictured in Rockauto's mount kits.

    They're only about $8/ea so it's an easy order if I need em. Thanks for any input!

    I just went ahead and bought these off ebay. I don't know if they're getting scarce. Well, I'm not even sure I'll need them for that matter.

    There was also a couple "Shield" items I wasn't too sure about. I found the OE bellows, so I may need them.

    It seems like it should be very straightforward, but it just isn't that simple finding the parts to piece these together.

    I plan on making a list of the required AC Delco part numbers for this project. Might even do a write-up, amount of free time pending.

    Part #'s so far:

    Strut - GM 506273
    Dust Shield(?) - GM 22189840
    Wedge/Isolator - GM 22167000
    Bellows - GM 901083

    You wont need the angle spacer if you get Monroe mounts. I had bad luck with groaning using those.

    I would buy the AC Delco professionals and re-use the plastic spacer.
    It looks like most mount kits manufacturers think you will re-use the old spacer.
    It does get pricey if you are replacing 100,000 original isolators, etc.

    Make sure you add more grease to the bearings i

    Anyway here is a pic I found of a Monroe assembly.

    That pic will be useful later, and I actually didn't think of grease yet either. Thanks on both accounts.

    Think I'm gonna pull one side, take the spring off and see what's layin there. Then I can compare with what I plan to order and ask questions.

    Just wanna make sure it's all here.

    I checked my Rockauto order from when I did it a few years ago.
    This is all I needed to get it done,front and back.
    The Monroe strut mate kits are probably your best deal. I didn't grease mine before install.
    I learned a lesson. I replaced them with Duralast from Autozone just because I decided to remedy it one day. Those I greased.
