Thanks,

No luck with the bodymounts  :( If I don´t find them I will have to rebuild the oldones,.. the steel on them are rusted...

The bags in the back are I think a dealer install, so I put them back in. When I took them out and washed I found a FoMoCo stamp and a partnumber starting with C8 something. Wil try to find the pics of the bags and put them here.

Here are the clean and back in.
