    Motor Mount Help

    I need to replace my motor mounts and have been thinking about going with solids. Is the vibration that bad with all solids?

    Can I do just the front and rear mount solid and leave the sides rubber? If this is possible can I do it without removing the sides?

    I have been looking at the maximal solids are there any others comparable in price and quality?

    Any help would be great.

    some people don't mind solids; but i think the general consensus is that if vibration is a concern, polys are the stiffest you should use.

    also, i can't recall with certainty, but i was thinking that if you were going to run solid/rubber mixed mounts, that the front/rear should be rubber & the sides solid. don't quote me on that though...because i can't remember my source.

    p.s.
    i went with 3sx's house-design OEM replacements. on sale, they were way cheaper than poly's...and vibrations won't be a problem at all. with any luck, they'll last another 10+ years--and i'm ok with that.

    +1 for the 3SX OEM replacements. They're a drop in replacement and were/may still be on sale.

    I just replaced the rear with a solid mount. I can tell a difference with it compared to the all rubber mounts. It is the only mount I replaced. I will so the front next at some point. I just did the rear because it was bad and I didn't want to have to deal with getting back in there again.

    Under 2K rpm I can feel the solids, but they can help from breaking drivetrain parts depending on how you drive/launch. Poly's can be felt too, if you don't want to feel them don't go solid or poly.

    Maximal Solid Mounts FTW! I love my solid mounts. Without a doubt you can definitely feel more vibration than stock but after having them in the car for 3 months now I don't even notice it anymore. The vibration is really not that bad, just helps keep you more in tune with the car. Go with solids and you won't regret it... they are cheaper too.

    +1 on the solids.

    I am running front,rear,trans "Last one got damaged so I put OEM back on" and the car feels so much more responsive. Plus, I can feel it when something is not right with the engine/trans. The vibration is less than my 05 Mustang with the flow master exhaust so I don't even notice the vibration in the Stealth anymore.

    No problem man. Enjoy them... I had an interesting thread going when I changed mine out. It took me two days to get those stock mounts out of there. I ended up using an electric impact from the mid 80's to break that rear mount loose. That was a fun few days...

    There might be some helpful info in there.
