I guess I would ask, if the mounts have been cut short?
BODIES can be exchanged...but not usually at the same height.
Every body is different in height in both the rear and the front.
Normally I leave my mounts full length if it's car I might change bodies on...if its not..then I cut them to length...to make them look cleaner.
Make sure your chassis is the height you want it before trimming your body etc.
On the VINTAGE BODIES just cut them at the pre-marked wheel wells and they work just fine on the TC3 and TC4 type of cars.
if the body mounts won't let the body sit high enough...you may need NEW mounts.
POST PICS and someone might have more ideas...
