Default Any way to get motor mounts on our cars?

Is it possible? I have heard of people chaining their motors down. What do you guys think? Maybe we can get the dog bones of a GP, and strap it up somehow?

Those dogbones are a W-body thing, I dont believe the H-body can do it.

However, arent the Bonneville mounts fluid filled? I do know G-body cars have optional billeted aluminum that harnesses the engine in and regains 10 ft-lbs of tq.

I assume that is what you are after?

Hmm, if they are fluid filled, I wonder if they can be solid filled with polyurethane or something of that nature? Didn't damerorder do that in his 93?

I went purely solid, Bad Idea

I'm liking the mount PontiacDad, 2000SilverBullet and rrounds have, Very nice and you should be able to adapt it.

My '97 has lower dog bones.
This is pretty common on most fwd cars.
Atleast the few that I have owned.

Really, now I'll have to get under there and look.
I'm from Missouri... you know what that means.
Glad it decided to quit raining today.
