    has anyone used these replacement mounts? you take the clamshell apart and insert the new poly insert?
    it does not seem all that great an idea to me
    i like the tranny mout though
    also the tranny mount came with a seprate metal piece that looks like it is supposed to go under the tranny mount, do you have to install this also?

    yes you seperate the clamshell and put the new poly insert in. I've done it, see nothing wrong with it(though they didn't fit my s10 clamshells very well). I welded the rivet holes back up after I put the poly bushings in, they don't say to do it but I liked the idea. Whatever you do, don't use the trans mount and not the engine mounts. bad idea. Engine mount should be stiffer than your trans mount, never the other way around.

    I use the motor mount inserts on my '87. They work very well and keep the BBC from wrapping up excessively. Next on my list is the tranny mount - the whole drivetrain will raise 1" under torque even with a new one.

    Anyone get the motor mounts cheaper than $100? Seems like a lot for a motor mount that's really an insert.

    Alright, I'll have to look around more. I was going to buy them but knew that had to be an outrageous price.

    I'd try a part number search on ebay. I was able to pick up a new set secondhand for $50.
