whats the difference

Post by Neoncrazy101 » Fri Jan 05, 2007 1:35 pm

hey guys i'm wondering what the difference is between buying new motor mounts and just buying inserts for the mounts already in the car? i mean obviosly the inserts u just insert in but are they worth it or should i just get new mounts?

Inserts tend to loosen up after awhile or not be as solid as new mounts which are either filled or dogbones. Inserts are nice and a great deal for the money but new ones that are already filled or custom made like the dogbones are better. If you go with inserts though, some people permanently glue them in just to prevent them from loosening up a whole lot.

OR...you could do what I did. FOr about $12 I did my side and front mount with Windshield Urathane. Autozone has it and it stiffens up just fine! Clean the mounts out of the car and let them dry. Put the tube of urathane in a cocking gun and fill the mounts as much as you want. If the fillings go onto the metal the vibes are real bad. Let it cure for about 3 days or so and install them. Perfect solid mounts.

Filled my front mount the same way, much cheaper and better if your's are slightly cracked. Just clean 'em , tape on side closed and fill it. Be sure to do one at a time so you're motor wont shift or fall out ! :lol:

The inserts depend on which ones they are as to wether or not they'll come out or loosen. My Prothane inserts on my SRT-4 are firmly held in place with a large washer and it cannot come out or loosen, but the Rex inserts could possibly loosen or fall out however the ones that were on my '99 R/T never did and they were Rex inserts. With my '88 Shelby Z I filled in the mount gaps with black permatex and no problems, but I only did that because there were no inserts for it.

i've used both prothane inserts and flex sides and firm front. I have noticed no difference at all. The only thing that i have really noticed is that the firm front makes the car vibrate a WHOLE hell of a lot more.

my flex sides and firm front were deyeme.

BTW if interested i do have my passenger side flex deyeme mount (red fill) for sale .. pm if u want a cheap almost brand new mount.
