Our urethane mounts are a direct replacement for worn factory mounts. They will fit just like the factory mounts with no other modifications. The factory mounts are designed as a rubber bladder with liquid in them to create the soft, comfy feel of the Cadillac. After these mounts have had some miles on them, they crack and leak out the liquid creating a blown motor mount. You will notice if your engine mounts are bad by how your car turns off. If your vehicle rumbles to a stop like a diesel engine, your engine mounts are shot.
What sets our mounts apart from our competition is our engine mounts have a two-part interlocking steel framework encased in urethane to give engine support in both directions of push and pull. When the engine tries to twist under acceleration the driver's side of the engine tries to lift, putting that mount in tension (pull apart) and the passenger side mount in compression (push together). Then, when you gear down into a corner or to stop, these forces are reversed. Our mounts are correctly designed and take both of these forces into account. Our mounts have pins on both sides of the mount that fit into the factory location of the mounting bracket. They also come with aluminum heat shields.
We are now selling two different hardness' of urethane for these mounts:
Daily Driver/Street(BLACK): For those who want to replace the factory mount with something stronger that will hold up to the power of the V8, but still want to maintain the noise and vibration feel of OEM.
Race(RED): For those who use their vehicle at the drag strip or autocross and/or don't mind the added noise/vibrations.
