Are you sure there are spacers? I not sure about my 92 truck. Never had the bed off, but my 75 just mounts directly to the frame. The cab has rubber mounts though.

I replaced my bed on my 93 this summer with a donor from another f250, there are no spacers that I know of, the places where the bed mounts to the frame the bed is just in direct contact with the frame. It was really easy.

The front and rear bolts need to be long but the middle set (I only had 6 holding my 8ft bed on, not 8) can be shorter.

My frame rises at the axle too.

The bed bolts directly to the frame, there "MAY" have been a few shims for alignment from the factory, but no "mounts" as such.

there are 3 sets of bolts. front,middle, where the frame kicks up, and back, right inside the bed. there are no spacers, and the bed does not sit on the frame above the wheels. if you want to support the bed above the wheels you will have to make a bracket like this

I just cut the floor out of the bed on my '95 250. No spacers, but there were thin rubber washers between ther bed and frame at each bolt.

the one inside? pull the line off the outside, pull the trans, replace it, might as well replace the clutch plate, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and piolet bearing while your opened up, put trans back, install line, bleed the clutch. done. not bad unless it's 4x4, then you are dealing with a lot of length, and weight
