Wow - Autozone wants $102 for theirs...at least around here! It is listed on their site as "hydraulic" so, it is not a solid mount. Rockauto has theirs listed for $45.

no, what they told me was the stock hydrollic is $ 83.99 and the solid one which was not hydrollic is $51.99. He told me that the way the solid was was built it wouldn't last very long because it was all rubber and would corrode and break more easily sooner.

I now have over 140,000 miles on my solid mount and i would never go back to the stock mount. You can make your own mount for next to nothing. Do a search, you will find all the info you need to make your own.

I went out to autozone and double checked that its the same part and it is. Thanks to the pic in the post earlier I located the mount and tested it how you guys told me to and it looks like the movement is coming from that mount by the tranny.

The AutoZone tech told me that a solid mount wouldn't increase any power to the wheels or do much but it seems like you guys seem to feel a difference.

If the repair is warrantied I won't be doing the work myself so it'll get replaced with OEM equiptment because I'm sure the shop won't install the hockey pucks. Maybe I'll replace it when the warranty up though in a few thousand miles.

Here take a look at this

It'* so easy to make, you can use anything to fill the gap(not just hockey pucks)
Get a hole saw and cut some 2 1/2" to 3" circular disk'* out of the sidewall of an old tire.
It won't affect your warranty.
