    Replacing the transmission mount...

    I called Max at Creative Steel today and found that he does not have a transmission mount for the non-V CTS yet, so I ordered one off of RockAuto and ordered a RevShift insert for it while I was at it.

    Anyone replace their mount with the Anchor part? Anyone out there using the RevShift transmission mount insert? How hard is the insert to install into the mount? Is it something that I need a hydraulic press for? I am going to have CS do the install, and get their flex disks and differential bushing installed at the same time. Hopefully I can have this done by Halloween.

    For the revshift insert... From what I understand... you probably need at most a rubber mallet. Shouldn't require a press to insert it.

    Re: Replacing the transmission mount...

    RockAuto is on point with speedy service. I already have my transmission mount. As soon as I get my insert I will be calling Max back scheduling my driveline rebuild. It is going to be around $400 for the install, plus the $200 flex disks. But even when you include the price of the differential bushing, new transmission mount, and insert, the whole cost is about what GM charges for a new driveshaft, and this should be a better solution.

    The new mount is steel and rubber. I couldn't find any transmission mounts out there with polyurethane. To my knowledge, Duralast, DEA, and Anchor all use rubber. And those are those only replacement mounts I have found.

    Does Energy Suspension make tranny mounts ? They make a lot other poly items.

    For the CTS? No, I don't think so.

    Re: Replacing the transmission mount...

    I have the mount and the RevShift mount insert. Has anyone used this insert on a non-V automatic transmission? Is there a trick to get the inner-most half of that insert block in place? The outter half pushes right in, but that back piece does not want to go in for me. Any tricks? Or is this just one of those jobs that requires a lot of cussing and hitting things with a hammer?

    You know, we can answer any questions you have about Revshift products.

    You have to slide the back half in at an angle and then work it into place. Put the back in before the front. Its a tight fit but it will go in.
    We are thinking about taking step by step pictures for installing it because it can be tricky.

    Re: Replacing the transmission mount...

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will put it together after lunch.

    Update: It is installed. It was really easier than I was making it. I just had to quit being a b!tch about it. Good job, RevShift, really a great product. Excellent fit, locks right in, and now the transmission mount is way more solid. I cannot wait to have that brand new, reinforced mount installed in my car.
