Default 99 SSEi Frame Isolators?

Has anyone had the opportunity to replace or heard of the procedure, pricing of the Frame Isolators.. located in the front supporting engine.

Thank you.

Frame isolators don't support the engine. They isolate the frame from the subframe.

So are you talking about engine mounts or subframe isolators?

Neither are available as an aftermarket performance solution. OEM or OEM replacements from your local store are the options.

Thank you so much Will, I have been disconnected of the club because I purchased an 2006 Xterra brand new, I was fed up with the issue of repairing, never having time for my son,, and parents were actually bitching of grease marks and using the garage.

I have put the car for sale sign since septermber and it hasn't bee sold, I didn't want to spent more money in it, I don't have money. I have been riding the Bonneville more than the xterra, to reserve miles on the Xterra.

I have school, work and personal business.. I wish I have more time and money; and an area to work in the bonnie. I really have a passion for the hobby.


I love the Bonneville and I put so much work to it and I also have the books.

What can you recomend of all this.?

Should I go for the Isolators?

What are your symptoms? Why do you think your isolators are bad and need to be replaced? This is extremely rare.

I had an accident a long time ago... I drove on top of sidewalk at 30mph or less. I replaced almost everything... someone in the fam, that had a grand prix with the same series engine said that he had the same problem and by replacing them it resolve the problem.

I replaced the front struts, ball joints, motor mounts, trans Dog'* bone mount and front, lower arms bushings, links, bearings...

When driving goint thru a pothole or bumpi roads, the car feels like it is going to fall. but on perfect roads rides awsome. at fast speeds you don't feel anything... the hits are more shock absorbent.
