    Default Cab rubbers

    Hi guys, I drive an Isuzu KB250 LE, 2004 model. I get alot of cloncking sounds with bodyrole. I fear the cab rubbers are a bit tired. As I understand there are 12 of those. Got a quote for R5500 to have these changed. Is this something that can be done over a weekend in the driveway?

    Thx,
    Ben

    It's a sod of a job. You need to basically support the body on jacks for the whole operation while you swop out the rubbers, and those nuts will be well rusted and corroded by now.

    I would say doing all those on your driveway on your own in one weekend is a bit of a stretch.

    It's one of those jobs that eventually make R5.5k sound like a bargain.

    Cab rubbers don't cause body roll and if they make a clunk, which is distinctly different to a suspension clunk (more 'tinny' since it's a body panel), they have completely collapsed or the bolts are loose.

    Vrot cab rubbers are easy to spot. The body panels don't line up (like the cab sits lower than the loadbin). If this is not the case, look elsewhere for the issue or you'll spend R5.5k for nothing

    I agree with this. First double-check all suspension and shock absorber rubbers.

    Had all my rubbers replaced by Isuzu specialist in Wellington. Bakkie has 360k on the clock, drives like new again. Should have had it done years ago!!!
