Default Broken mounts!!!

Hey guys,

I was out tonight on my way to have dinner. I started to drive forward and heard a loud bang. As soon as that happened I could rotate my steering wheel 360 with out any trouble. I call a tow truck thinking my steering is shot. The tow truck driver looked under my car and noticed the 4 mounts busted. The Subframe(not sure it thats what it is called) was in good shape but the rubber around the bolts was dry rotted bad.

I need to know what those are called so I can go buy them and replace them.Any help guys would be great

They are subframe/engine cradle spacers and bolts.

I can't seem to find those on any of the autoparts stores online. Would these be something the average local autopars would carry?t

I believe that the Dealer has these items....I know that Bandit has recently replaced these parts and should chime in on where to get them

The only place you can buy these is at the Dealer :(

Cuz i know like me, i need my bonne for work so i could not wait for GM PD ro ship them.

It will run you about $10 each for each part, the Retainer and the Insulator.

So $40 for each side $80 total or so.... give or take $2 a part


Heres a pic of the parts. just bring this with you and they will know what to get you.
And like me, you really dont have to replace the top parts unless they look really bad, mine didn;t look that bad only the Bottom ones did.

I really wish that some aftermarket company DID sell these bushings as an upgraded Urethane product. I have to replace the bushings on mine and was looking for something aftermarket....to no avail.

Well Bandit. You saved my butt. After what happened last night I can think to hearing those things pop on my car only I thought I hit a small animal or a small tree branch. I can recall 3 times I heard that BUMP!

The last obviously is the one I really noticed=P Well time to start calling the dealerships and see who might have them in stock. Going to try and fix it today so I can go to work Friday.
