Was asked to post pics on my trans mount to get some opinions if it was bad and I needed to replace with Revshift support mount. I crawled under the car and snapped a few pics, if need more let me know. Trying to solve this rough shifting problem and nearly impossible to reverse.

Thanks for the reply Dark, maybe the Revshift support block will solve my shifting and reverse issue.. At least I hope so. Anyone else think its toast?

It may just be me, but I would replace the mount too while you are at it. It looks horrible.

So the Revshift support block wouldnt fix it? Or do I need mount and support block? The suuport block is pressed into the mount so I would think that would work. At least my guess? Anyone else?

Agree - new mount with Revshift insert for longevity. It would be easier if the OEM mount weren't so pricey.

I suppose you could try the Revshift block first, cause then if it doesn't look right you still gotta get that one out of there, in which removing the insert would be easy when the mount is off the car.

Your mount is pretty bad, but for cost reasons no reason not to try the Revshift first.

Personally, I would go with this plan. You can always buy a new OEM mount later.

For comparison sake, anyone got a pic of a good trans mount installed?

I like this idea, I just ordered the trans block. Hope this solves the retarted hard getting into reverse and small rough shifting.

Decent shape? As in how many miles on it? Revshift bushings or support block? And how much? Trans block is only 40 went ahead and got that

There was no difference in height once the block was installed into the NEW mount.

Hmmm nice find there, looks like the block does the exact same thing as a brand new mount costing 100$ more!! Good to know!

My mount looked identical to yours. Revshift block inserted back in October 2012...game changer!

The RS block completely corrected my issues with going into reverse I was having, my mount didn't look 1/10th as bad as yours, I cant even imagine how your getting into gear with that thing....good luck should be a easy fix and major improvement.

Why buy a new mount and a RS insert? Why not just buy the CS mount?

----------

Just went and looked at the pictures again...... I'd fix the leak that saturated the mount in oil and buy a CS mount. The rubber on your mount is so bad installing a RS insert will fix only part of the issue

My 2 cents - just installed the Revshift trans mount insert on Sunday and the difference was immediate. I had limited clearance under jack stands and a jack under the trans and got it done in less than 20min including jacking. Looks like it will not fit and then surprises u when it does. I wish I could say I have this issue often. LOL

Use the grease; made it pretty easy.
