Tech Tip for 2010-2014 GM Body Mount Bolt Applications

Tech Tip for 2010-2014 GM Body Mount Bolt Applications

GM has made changes to their 2010 through 2014 Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra trucks. Some applications require the removal of factory Body Mount Bolts to attach the bracket to the vehicle. GM

previously used a fixed nut that was welded in place to the chassis of the truck. Starting late 2010, GM now uses a loose nut that is surrounded by a “Cage Nut" which has two tabs on either side of the nut to keep it from loosening. GM is also using Heavy Duty Loc-tite on the Body Mount Bolts for added protection.

 

Due to this change, Raptor Series is recommending using extreme caution when removing body mount bolts. Loosen and re-tighten all body mount bolts by hand! DO NOT use Impact Tools of any kind! If bolts become increasingly tight as you are loosening them you may need to retighten & loosen the bolt several times to clear the Loc-tite from the threads. Failure to follow this instruction could cause the body mount bolts to seize and the tabs of the 'Cage Nut' to bend allowing the nut to spin freely inside Chassis floor board!

 

Unless your 2010-2014 Chevrolet/GMC truck has a (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) DEF Tank, the use of this style mounting can be avoided by using a Rocker Panel Mount application (see figure below). This will use GM factory mounting points on the rocker panel and eliminate any chance of damaging your vehicles body mount bolts.
