You've confused me.They must of cheapened them up considerably. The ones I bought there probably 15 years ago were made in U.S.A. and are still going strong. Don't people complain that they get way more vibration with the poly ones. Hows the trans mount. That's transmission, sorry.
You've confused me.
Are you talking about HR Parts 'n Stuff's mounts, or parts store mounts?
The only thing that would have changed in HR's mounts is the durometer of the polyurethane. Power levels have gone up, I wouldn't be be surprised if they upped the stiffness of the bushing material to go along. Or maybe they didn't and people just get on the internet and bitch too much these days?
Do they transmit more vibration to the car? Yes. That's why they last. They don't move. Nobody makes a quality rubber motor mount today. The OEM ones are all gone. Everything is Mexican or Chinese, and they don't use a higher durometer rubber like GM did for this engine. You're getting the same mounts as they sell for a 110hp 2bbl carb 3.8 V6, because it makes zero sense for them to make a special set of mounts for us. As a result, they won't last.
Engine sat straight with the different mounts.I will call them tommorrow. I just don’t like the idea of a mid-matched anything much less motor mounts. Seems to me the motor may sit crooked
