I think the fix is for 2001-2006 Crew cabs, but I don't why it would not work, unless the the design is different now.

new mounts work for 2001 +. GM never bothered upgrading to the new mounts.

Probably the best $120 (uppers & lowers) I've spent. If you just buy the upper mounts it's only $60.

BTW- Sulastic Shackles cost $340 & now I no longer think I need them.
Have you removed the Sulastic Shackles? I have put the new mounts on and the vibration at 45 has disappeared, but I am getting the same vibration at 65 mph now, just wondering if the sulastic is worth the extra 340.00, not ready to buy a new truck, if they work will probably have them installed.

07.5 GMC Sierra 2500 HD vibration

Thanks, I've been looking all over for this. I had seen it in the past but could not find any info. I've got an 07.5 CCSB 4x4 and it rides like crap and has a terrible vibration. I'm going to take it in and have it checked out

I installed the Sulastic Shackles after the Cab Mounts. Now my truck rides like a Caddy (for a 3/4 ton). I got the Cognito UCA but have not had a chance to put them in yet.

Can some one describe the vibration better for me. Mine has a vibration that starts about 40 to 45 and seems to go through 60. I just assumed my front tires needed balancing. My truck is a Crew Cab long bed.

Well, I'm smack in the middle of chasing the fabled "frame beaming" vibration. I only say that because those cab mounts did not completely fix my problem.

I had new wheels/tires installed about 3 months ago. The first time I had them rotated/rebalanced the vibration started. It would start about 45mph and last till a little over 50.

Had the tires rebalanced 3 times and one tire replaced....so, maybe it was just coincidence. So, I installed the Sulastics. Definitely smoothed out the ride, but vibe still there. Installed new shocks. No improvement. Installed the new rear body mounts. Noticeably less vibration in my pants, but i can still see the rear end hopping.

Had the tires rebalanced again. Nothing. Just got off the phone with the tire shop and I will have 4 new tires waiting for me tomorrow afternoon. We shall see.....

Vibration

I have finally solved the vibration problem. Had the frame beaming issue, replaced body mounts, it helped but still had vibration. Had tires checked for roundness, they were all so far off they could not be corrected, so bought 4 new tires. Also had a slightly bent rim, searched and searched to find a straight OEM rim, finally found one, had it mounted and shazam, vibration issue is gone. I had Generals on the truck, my guess is the frame beaming vibration must have screwed up the roundness of the tires, I had the same tires rebalanced 3 times until I had them checked for roundness. Almost drives like new, still need to replace the steering shaft fitting that GM won't cover.

Is this for a 2009 also or did they fix the problem by then?
