    Question Installation of a new 34 gallon fuel tank insulators ?

    I'm having a new fuel tank and fuel pump assembly installed in my 1990 Silverado. Has anyone done this operation and what do I use as the 'Anti-Squeak' strips? I see the LMC sells a Anti-Squeak kit. Do I need it, (I bought it anyway $14.99) or did you something different? I don't want to finish this job and have the tank shifting around for my own mistake of not putting something on the tank straps to hold the tank for moving around ? Thank you for your help !

    I can't be the only person to R&R the fuel tank. Haven't anyone here had to deal with a replacement tank, and if you did, what did you do about the "Anti-Squeak" type of insulation ?Click image for larger version.

    I did it in my 1995. I did not use anything. The tank had a plastic cover. It never squeaked. I did try to get some thin foam rubber in there but the straps were too short for the foam to fit
