    i want to get a set of the ORD motor mounts for my suburban, just how much more vibration do they send into the body? im not opposed to it and i dont mind my suburban feeling like a race truck, i was just wondering if its untolerable for a daily driver.
    [NOTE; my suburban has already got 36" TSLs on it so vibration and noise dont bother me.]

    I know you can crack and twist a frame with solid mounts...

    I have them on two trucks. The ORD mounts are not solid but, they are much more solid than the stock rubber mounts. They have poly inserts in them.

    I do not notice any unusal vibrations. Its nice knowing the mounts are really good holding in the 502.

    The only word of caution, is to make sure you get the poly tranny mount(s) as well, or you will be cracking an adapter or tranny.

    I absolutely agree. And yes I did crack an adapter but it was vice versa (running poly transfer case mounts and rubber motor mounts). After I busted the adapter I installed ORD motor mounts and have not had trouble since.
