Took me awhile to figure out what you meant, but now it's clear. These mounts 
were supplied as complete units only, but I guess they could come apart. I know 
the center part can be pulled out. I'd expect your part to be just like all the 
rest of the type 3 IRS rear mounts as used from 69-73. It would be easiest if 
you just got a pair that was still complete with the rubber and installed them, 
rather than trying to press them apart and reassemble.

You won't have to realign as long as you mark the position of the old ones, 
assuming that they are still in their original places.

Yes, I would think that these would make a huge racket if the rubber was not 
there anymore.

I have these also, in good used condition, if you need them, but I'll bet you 
can find them locally in a late type 3 parts car.
