Hey Guys,

I need to replace the tranny mount on my 66 Calais (429/TH400) and it's ridiculously expensive!!!! Is there any way around spending $150 from the Caddy Daddy on eBay for his new poly mount or up to $200 getting my stock one refurbed?

A few places list the regular Energy Suspension RWD GM mount to fit it, but it doesn't look like that'll work without serious modification.

So, any ideas? Anyone got a good used one laying around? ;)

Thanks in advance!

Hey Jay, thanks. You knew I'd make it back eventually. ;) Looks... uh... different. :)

And Alby, thanks. I had seen all those. That 89 dollar one looks promising, but 4 weeks is a long wait. I'll have sold it by then, knowing me! ;) That's a very long term commitment for me!!! LOL!
