Hi guys

Where in JHB can I get Polyurethane mounts made up... OR decent aftermarket ones.
It's for a 7AFE motor.

Thanks

from personal experience, on my 4a-fe, polyurethane mounts are way too stiff for an FE motor, its extremely annoying cos it shudders on takeoff and acceleration... poly mounts are for extremely high-power applications where normal mounts would fail.. the poly mounts are way too stiff for everyday driving - the factory mounts are the best

Ive heard that they can make u softer ones. They just drill a few holes in them to allow flex.

A friend of mine bought his in Durbs and they softened it for him :wink:

It black wayne :thumbright:
The other colours are the SOLID ones.
Feels like the sidewall of your inflated tyre.
Its completely filled with two holes for flex.

Its R200 each but if you hand in a set of 4 or more they are R150 each :thumbright:

Been wanting to do this for a while now, but was also worried about the vibration issue. So when they make up your new one does it still have that metal part in the centre for the bolt or is it jus full poly with drilled holes?

Kwl thanks wezo. You did all four I'm guessing?

worry about the front and rear ones most! the other ones just keep the motor in place and doesnt really "take" any torque. Oem are fine for them. U should be most concern about the firewall and radiator mounts!

with hard launching and abusive driving, the oem mounts will last js under a year if u are lucky
I had the poly mounts made up fr the tec, best move ever..very very slight vibration on idle, with driving, there are no signs of vibration
These mounts have bn tried and tested by many of the guys here on the forum, works 100s

The siga flex mounts are weak, they never lasted long with my driving, go the poly route :thumbright:

Howzit, I did my mountings for my 2E Tazz about 3 years ago after going through a couple of aftermarket ones, no problems thus far just some vibration on the car that I would like to get rid of. I forgot the name and contacts of the engineers all I can remember they are in Alberton and I found them in the yellow pages.
