Don't Call Me Gaga!
I'd say you deserve a full ten points for that dissection.
I just did the lower mount on my SVT, mine didn't look bad but I could move the motor more that .25" by hand. So I replced it with the CFM one and man what a difference that made and my car only has 51k on it.SecretAgentMan2k said:OK, so I'm going to buy a new passenger side motor mount. I decided to take a look at the rear motor mount just to make sure I didn't need that too. How do you tell if the rear mount is bad? The "dog bone" looks fine. The bushing on the small end looks like it's not a complete circle. It looks like the circumference is missing except for a section about half an inch long at the far end. I can't tell if there's more bushing tucked inside and if that's how it's supposed to be. If it is indeed bad, I'm thinking of replacing them with prothane inserts. Do they pop in easily? Thanks for any advice.
The link is not working anymoreContinued from above....
I cut the old mount in half to see how they work.
You can see in this picture how the mout would bottom out and cause the vibration. You can see all of the pictures I took here. http://www.sirscca.org/gene/zx3/MotorMount/index.html
Yeah, might as well just replace both while you're at it.i inspected today!
the passenger side mount is leaking oil and i can hear a little hiss of air when i push on it..
the driver's side seems to be the side thats vibrating LOTS though, like, you can SEE the motor hopping...
should i go ahead and replace both sides?
