It'* not even my idea! I stole it from the Canadians! (because it seems to work a whole lot better than my actual idea, a solid pipe, which i hate)


Whatever you do, I urge you NOT TO BUILD A REAL, WELDED SOLID MOUNT. Seriously. The first week it was cool..... Then I drove to MN with it.... I didn't feel my heels for two days after I got back. Now it makes my feet hurt anytime... It'* not a good mod.

Here'* what I'm thinking, But I see you have a different mount. Check and see if the 94'* mount looks like it would fit, I know the solid rubber mount i started with had the same pads as the 94 I got the parts to build my solid mount.

This is a common problem on the GP'* but I have not heard of it being an issue on Bonnevilles. That being said you may be the first pre 2K bonnie to put headers on and you may be experiencing the same affect. As Shawn said most GP'ers just flip the sway bar and the problem is fixed. You may start with that.

I've had mine on for a few months now (TOGs) and they will hit in reverse. Definately have to do something along the lines of 2000SilverBullet'* fancy mount .

What are they hitting though? Sway bar, tranny tube, or both?

Pop the hood and have a friend shift for you with their foot on the brake, see what it looks like.

This isn't a problem for me either, looks like the 2K'* are OK and Pre 99'* will hit.

take an idea from way back in the 80'* from buick performance... short Heavy duty Rachet strap... they used to sell it as an engine stabilizer kit for the turbo 3.8 cars

probably the best part of doing this (other then its CHEAP) is you won't get the vibrations transfered through the unibody of the car... but it'll stop the engine from slingin around

I perfer the urethane engine and trans mounts myself (of differing grades to stop harsh vibrations) ...but GOOD stock mounts and a rachet strap would help out alot

my last car had engine and trans mounts that were filled with HARD urethane... and I totally agree on the solid mount thing... 2 hours in the car was my max ... I had to get out and walk around for atleast 15 mins ...unless I build a car that will only see weekend and cruise duty on the street and mainly see a track... I won't do that again.
