None of the mounts are originally solid on any of the years. W bodies can buy one that is called solid, but they are simply unfilled. Typically most mounts are filled with oil.

the hockey puck or that white mount are going to be your best bets. The mount Dan speaks of is totally different in his year than yours. You need to remove your mount and change it out.

As for the rear and side mounts in your year. They can go bad, but typically the front is the first to go and once that is taken care of, the other don't usually have problems.

I bought my mount from Tommy...it still hasn't been installed yet though. Since I bought it right before I came to Korea. I'm sure I could tell the g/f to take it to her dad though since she has no tools.

Go to MC Sports or whatever sporting goods store you have around you, buy 3 solid hockey pucks and then go to your hardware store and get two nuts, 1 locking washer, and a bolt all grade 8. Drill a hole down the center of all the pucks and install.

I used 4 pucks, and put one on top of the engine bracket. It isolates the vibration better. A materials list and pictures are in this thread:

I'd like to bring back this thread since I've got the same vibrations in my '99 PA and figured I would change all three mounts. I've got the procedures to change the torque axis and the front mount but I'm not sure what it takes to change out the rear mount.

Can you get the engine high enough? Do you have to unbolt the cradle?

I'll be doing this in my garage with a 2 ton jack and stands.

Please don't bring back old threads. Instead, create a new thread in the proper section detailing your issue, and then post the link to this thread in it. Thank you. Thread Closed.
