Default Solid Motor mounts?

I was informed that certain year bonnevilles had solid mounts and some not. Is there a way to know which years did? I'm looking for solid mounts for a 2001. Thanks

I just ate thanks. I was thinking of doing that. Is there other mounts beside the front that are solid? Or is the front the main important one?

he was telling me to go eat since i hung up the phone to go do so earlier hehehe

ya the front one is the usual one to cause problems. once that one goes it allows your motor to wobble back and forth and twist which inturn rips your rear trans mount. so ya hockey puck the front and you'll be good. you'll get a lil vibration at idle and around 35-40mph but nothing major

I've still got a couple of my specially designed front engine mounts sitting in the garage.

Solid front motor mount made out of Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene with a grade 8 bolt.

My experience has been that there is a very small rpm range you will actually notice a resonance, and it'* at the very bottom of a gear when slowly accelerating. Nothing that has made me regret putting one on. This could probably be defeated by using some type of insulation between the mount, I've just got it solid on the bottom and an old chunk of tire on top.

I drilled my mount out and put a 1/2" case 10 bolt threw it, No movement there at all.
