Here at GNT,,, we have been asked a few time,,,, " Do you need the factory steels" and well the answer is yes. and here is a how to....

First remove your factory mounts. they will probably look like this..........

i started by warming up the steel a little bit to soften it,,,, nothing crazy just yet,,,, lol

now i took a shoe knife and sliced off the rubber...

and it comes out like this.....

now for the part that has the bushings in it. i warmed it up and used some pliers. twist it till it becomes free.

Then heat up and slice like before. note this steel has a taper to it. and note the direction. it can also not be used if you choose not to use it.... its all a personal choice. but for here..... were gonna use it.

now, lets pour on the heat a little,,,, burn the rubber off,,,,note,,,there hot.... lol.. ask me how i know.

Now,,, let them cool. and off to the blast cabinet. or if you dont have one you can sand or scrape the residue off.

and they kinda come out like this. i needed to blast a bit more but good enough for demonstration.
Posted Image

now, for some self etching primer,,,

and paint,,,,,,,,,,

now there dry enough to handle,, re assemble.

And thats how its done. re install back in your car. and go for a spirited,,non clunking ride.
