Lower motor mounts (2 part question)

1279 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  valbowski1980
Next weekend I am doing my mounts since they are shot to **** and at this point and I can actually afford address this.

Question 1:
I don't want to go OEM (unless I have to) since they are overly pricey so does anyone know of good aftermarked hydro. mounts as well as a on-line place which sells them?

Question 2:
Quasi's site states that the subframe has to be loosened to get the new front mount in and this is the only part of the whole project which worries me. I am sure that plenty of you guys have done this so does this really have to be done that way or is there a way around it?

Thanks in advance


Are there any other pitfalls with this project?

Using alternative Scantec or Coretec parts is fine, likely the same as Saab except perhaps paint and price. You might zip-tie some hose in the gap to limit movement, perhaps give yourself longer life for new mounts.

Examine the gearbox mount as well. Agree with Basre on procedure.

I'm going to be in the market to replace all my mounts in the next 2 weeks, which place has the best deal as far as price/quality? I want poly uppers and some decent lowers. I don't mind vibration, etc. I just want long life.
DO NOT buy the eEuroparts black poly uppers. My Aero ate them both in less than 400 miles, they came apart on normal road use!!!

I changed the uppers to the yellow poly ones (Powerflrx I think, Abbott) as well as the gearbox; huge improvement, no new vibration, and they should last for the life of the car.
