engine mounts

I just cracked the zorts side engine mount on the ea. Are there any better mounts that you can fit, that are better than the factory one? and how much should I be paying?

Cheers

Re: engine mounts

You can change the K frame to that off an EF/EL and install their mounts, that's what I'm doing. Other than that, I don't think there really is anything out there.

Re: engine mounts

Stock ones aren't so bad. About $30-$50 each, I seem to remember.

Re: engine mounts

Thanx guys for the info. I ended up getting some new ones from Just Falcons for $25. While under the car I found out the uni joints are stuffed on the tail shaft. There goes another $150, it just never ends.

Re: engine mounts

Gunns..
You don't need to spend $150 to fix uni joints..
Post back here if you haven't spent it yet and want to find out how it can be a lot cheaper

Re: engine mounts

Fitting new unis yourself to your tailshaft isnít difficult.
They are about $20-25 each, so you could save about $100 on the figure you quoted.
Thereís more than one type of uni, it depends on your car, although it may not be the original type if itís had a diff change.
The two main types are inner circlip and outer circlip. A look says it all as to which type it is.
If you want a hand and can come up to Bayswater I can help you out and show you what to do.

Re: engine mounts

Yeah, dead easy to DIY! All you need is circlip pliers and a hammer, really.

Re: engine mounts

Thanks guys. I have just pulled the tail shaft out, and am about to knock out the unis, and get a couple of new ones, once everything opens, didn't think that I would get it out that easy because everything else on the car has had it fair share of problems. (it must be a female, difficult & temperamental)
