    Guys I'm still trying to figure out if these poly mounts add tons of vibration and harshness into the car? I want to overhaul all of the bushings as well but before in my Fbody the poly mount was a vibrating pos. also with the rev speed poly insert what type of press do you need to press out the stock and insert the poly? Is it something you can take to an auto shop really quick and get them to do I on a hydraulic press or us it easy and use a table clamp setup? Thanks

    My gosh man. Read some of the installation threads and driving impressions before asking questions like that. There's no need to have five hundred threads on the same subject when the answers are already there.

This is all the justification I need. The CS mount looks brand new still, but just felt like crap in the car. No comparison what so ever.

    BTW someone can have this doorstop for free (pay shipping) if they want to try it out.
    I'll take it, we've sold a gob of trans mounts with no calls to complain. Send it to me, I'll cut it apart for inspection, if there was a problem I will refund your money. I've said it more than once, if anyone ever has a problem with any of our parts, call us, for crying out loud...call us. It is the best way for you the customer to be satisfied. If you think there is something wrong with what you bought from us don't give it away, don't throw it away. Call us first, we're not going to rake you over the coals to get a refund. We're here to help, not here to sell junk then leave you hanging if your expectations aren't met.

    Eveyone needs to understand the driveline alignment, slop, and harmonics of this platform are horrible.

    A few MM's here or there and you are moving things completely out of line. Add in certain driving environments, mileage, temperature fluctuations, wear and tear as well as owner driving style and I doubt there is going to be any one standard per se.
    Which is why you'll see certain people running into issues with one product and not another.

    Even with my conversion I still have one of the lowest mileaged cars around (just broke 12k) and I am running a mixture of UUC parts and RevShift parts without issues and the car lives mosty in triple digits now.

    I think its not so much as to which is better or worse but more of which product will pair up better with the overall vehicle.
    Case in point, a new tranny mount may be a few thousanths higher than the old one its replacing and create a whole mess of vibration, where as that same vehicle can take just the tranny insert in the original mount and never run into an issue...
