1995 SC1
Default Upper motor mount question

I still have the original upper motor mount on my '95 SC1, but am experiencing some above-average vibration. I know not to get the 'frowny-face' mount. Where is the best (price, warranty) place to obtain one? How long should I expect a new one to last?

Thanks in advance!
Ryan

The DEA 1st design (for $19) is probably what you're looking for. Rockauto tends to be the best/cheapest place to get parts. At that price I'd probably also change the transmission mount while I was at it too, since it's only like ~$15 and seems to go about the same time the motor mount does.

OEM is the only way to go for that mount, Aftermarket units are hit and miss and some can add to the vibration that your already experiencing.

A few drain and fills of the AT might make a difference. I have not changed a mount on my vehicle and the vibrations are minimal. I did 4 drain/fills back in March and it really helped.

YMMV

GMPartsnow.com for the OEM mounts is a good place. It's where I bought mine and the price was the lowest I could find. I do not know exactly how long they will last, but most members here would agree they last for many years.
