which brand of mount?

Postby pannebreaux [OP] » January 29th 2016, 3:13pm

been looking around and reading about transmission mounts from "different manufacturers". they all point back and forth saying each other's product sucks. dug a bit deeper and it seems they are all made by DEA. reading around different forums, the users seem to agree with the manufacturers. what's the latest consensus on the best mount to use on a rwd?

Stock one on the trans. Poly on the engine mounts. Trans tailshaft needs to move. It is a weak point. The like to break the tailcase if they held tight and the front moves. So that the best move. Hold it tight in front. Rear use rubber and let it do what it needs to do.

I like to use the 'Frau' brand, when mounting is desired.

when you say stock does that mean direct from the gm stealership?

Just rubber as opposed to a poly or solid mount. Any old one will do. Anchor is the brand I went with.

I agree with Maher. I put poly on my trans rear mount and it added a lot of vibration to my van. Somewhere on my list of things to do is "Replace poly with softer rubber".

that's exactly what i'm up to, vibration elimination. it grumbles going down the road making me think i had a crunchy axle bearing. my extension housing bushing is worn out, so i figured while i have it apart i'd swap the circa 98 mount that has cracks and crusty abounding. it seems likes it's still intact, but ...

i saw a tool that pulls and presses the bushing from the outside without having to remove the cone. it's a bit pricey but figured i might be able to rent it from a big box laps. has anyone used it to swap their bushing? http://www.transmissionpartsusa.com/v/v ... 161A-2.jpg
