    How do i remover the upper isolator/cushion mine seems to have melted to the rearend. I jacked it as far as possible but it didnt seperate any ideas
     
  2. Which isolator do you actually mean?
    The 2 Isolators at the leaf spring, between bottom plate (shock mounts to) and rear-end housing can only be removed if the leaf spring is take off the rear-end housing.

    The upper isolator is just laid in there and probably wedged, backed and rotted to the rear-end housing. Scraping and pulling with a screw driver and pliers will get it out if the leaf is gone.

    The shackles isolators come out as u remove the shackle bolts and pull them out of the frame.
