Has anyone elses CAI soft mounts break off? And if so , what did you use to replace them ? If you got factory replacments what was the part # and where did you order them from.

mine broke off after 3 days, thread seperated from the rubber. I used a short peice of allthread & a rubber door stopper from homedepo cut down to match the old piece & a hole drilled through the center & a pair of washers. sounds silly but didn't want to wait for another one to show up. 5 months & it's still on there, so small it looks like the orig. almost!
<font color="red">those things break way too easy</font>
btw don't over tighten...& good luck!

I had the same problem when I got mine... but I picked mine up used and it had already toen and been repairedwith some epoxy from the previous owner. I went to an auto parts store and pick or some ruber door jam bushings and a 2mm X 2in long bolt and it worked perfect!
