Contact luke at Lindsay Cadillac. (<lbutler@lindsaycadillac.com>) He'll set you up, great price too. Also ask him about the LS7 clutch kit for our cars. It's soooo worth it.

Like Lupin said, Luke is one source for the UUC ones or for OEM ones. I've got the UUCs, but haven't had the need to change my stockers yet.

Others use Creative Steel's mounts.

Welcome!

I went with Creative Steel and no issues with them so far. Central PA is getting more representation on here GO STEELERS!

Creative Steel is a solid polyurethane that aside from reports of a possible bad batch awhile ago seem to hold up very nicely. They don't have a website just google them for the number and call Max. Replacing with stock you'll have the same issues down the road. New mounts should have a noticeable improvement but won't solve all the parade clunk and rattle, there is play in the drive line and after I replaced every bushing and mount available it's still there but reduced quite a bit. Stock clutch/fw is a big part of the problem.

Yep. I have all CS mounts (Motor, trans, diff) and with a single piece flywheel there is no clunk.

not too far away.

are you a member of the http://www.keystonegarageclub.com/ ? I just found them in Dec when trying to find a short shifter and somehow through the links to links found 'em. cost of membership is $20, which is a wash since the Beaver Springs drag owner gives out a $20 voucher for signing up.

I went to Beaver Springs two years ago with some friends to race bikes although I didn't make any runs (no full leather suit). My buddy did his burnout on his fourth or fifth pass and picked up a jaged piece of exhaust in his rear tire that the previous muscle car left behind. He did his run at 130mph before realizing this and his rear tire was completely flat at the exit. Scary day, it was pretty miraculous that he made it without issue. We patched it for the ride home and he apparently forgot and did a nice long wheelie that flattened it again, another patch kit bought at a gas station and we eventually made it back.
