Cool Motor mount issues

Hey guys hows it going? I have a 2002 SSEI mildly modded. I keep breaking the liquid filled front engine mount. Does anybody make a replacment mount thats worth a damn or do i have to get a hunk of poly and make my own? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

I believe W body store has a solid mount. You should be able to google W body store and find it.

OK, I'm not sure if Intense racing or ZZ performance have them, I think they only have the polly mounts

This might sound even more ghetto to you but i used a ratchet tie down wrapping it around the mount and under the cradle. Not pretty but I've seen Grand National owners do it to their cars so why not me? Bottom line: IT SOLVES THE PROBLEM without a lot of fuss trying to fabricate something and for a lot less cost and time. The factory mounts will continue to break and they are not cheap. It is a BAD DESIGN. you know that already. I went thru three of them and gave up.
