cab bushing adjustment

How much adjustment room is there to adjust the cab on the frame. The bed is lined up good but the cab needs to be about 3/8" to the pass side.

Re: cab bushing adjustment

What do you mean by the cab needs to move 3/8" to the pass side? How do you know the bed is square on the frame? Did you take actual measurements or did you just go by eye? For whatever reason the cab should be able to be adjusted that much. You just need to loosen the four cab bolts. The issue there is that when you do that you will throw off the fender to door alignment. The way to align everything is to start at the radiator support and work your way to the rear. This could require loosening all of the fender bolts as well in order to get all of your gaps correct.

Re: cab bushing adjustment

If the bushings are old and worn they will shift the cab. Unless you have NEW bushings you will never get it right. Daystar has an awesome set for about 100 bucks. look at the rear mounts if one looks more "squashed" then the other thats the reason.

The OP is referring to side to side adjustment and not up and down adjustment.

Re: cab bushing adjustment

The bed is actually pretty square to frame as I just did an r&R of the bed last winter. Measuring from the frame rail to the rocker pinchweld, the pass side is closer and visual core support references are slightly out of alignment as well. I've looked at this for the past 5 years or so and I'm pretty certain, but Ive not loosened the cab mounts to see what could be done.

The bushings are not hammered and the cab sits square on the frame.
