    I’m only doing one at a time as needed. All the bolts are seized in the nut welded to the frame due to rust so unless I can jack the side up 6 inches to clear an impact wrench, I’ll just be cutting them off and replacing with grade 8 lock nuts.

    Wow - didn't realize this thread was still alive...

    If you need space, loosen the other mounts on that side. I did the same thing at first, used a old bent box wrench to remove the mount - what a waste of time. Once it was loose, I realized I needed more space to get the new mount in.

    If you loosen the other mounts on that side, you can easily lift the cab 6 or more inches.

    Hope that saves someone some time in the future.

    Not so easy when the bolt is rusted into the nut welded to the frame.

    Just loosen the center bolts on the other mounts and jack the cab up, the only mount you need to remove the frame bolts on is the one being replaced.

    I had a sag on my 2000 Tundra. It started around 20 years old. It exhibited many of the symptoms you described. Turns out it was the leaf spring pack failing. Replaced them both and straightened it right up.
