upper motor mount-torque axis mount/dog bones
 
Does anyone know the brand/part number for the solid "non-frowny" mount?
I've read a ton of old posts about the mounts, and I guess it can be a crap shoot to which one you actually get?

On Amazon I found the Anchor brand shows a pic of the frowny, but there is another one listed "Westar EM2827 Engine Mount" that I can't tell what kind it is from the pic. Oh and I also recall in reading the old posts some peeps saying that alot of the pics seem to be generic and used by several sellers.

To add to the confusion, the reviews for the Westar EM2827 Engine Mount are conflicting, a couple say it is the thicker solid mount, and another says it's the frowny.

Another question on the dog bone mount, I pulled the lower passenger mount and I had planned to use ES black poly inserts, but on the one I removed the edges of the metal (looks like a stamped 2 piece frame)are rolled over the rubber by at least a good 1/4 to 3/8 inch so i see no way to get the new inserts in even if I burnt the rubber out. So I guess I need to buy new dog bones as well.

It's a game with the aftermarket suppliers. 2 different parts, same part number.

Only way to get OEM quality from it is to buy from the dealer. Even the solid aftermarket mount is sub-par quality.


Only the 3rd gen dog bone mounts have replaceable inserts.

I purchased that same Westar to mount (same part #) from Ebay a while back. It is indeed the solid type mount. However, when I installed it, the vibration inside the cabin actually got worse. It was horrible.

I should note that when I installed it, I hadn't yet replaced the trans mount, which was basically destroyed. So that may have affected the Westar mount performance.

But then when I replaced both mounts with OEM, the vibration essentially went away. So......I really wouldn't recommend the Westar. I would only go OEM for the engine and trans mounts.

I have some pictures of the Westar top mount:

I know the OEM # for my '95 is 21012185.
$60.71 at GMPartsDirect + shipping.
$74.51 from Amazon.

I would use OEM mounts as you will have more problems afterward with vibrations in the cabin if you choose the cheap aftermarket units.
