Does anyone have the full ralliart or power engineering silent blocs upgrade,including engine mounts steering and transmission?

Any improvements or other comments?

What about the front suspension top mounts? In some topics they are saying that the standard ones aren't very good and need to be changed but what about the ralliart ones?

I'm running Ralli-Art engine mounts, which look like they were made from SOLID RUBBER! http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

It makes the engine vibrations noticeably harsher, and you will feel slightly more vibrations in the clutch. Better think it over well enough before getting one.

Having used both the RalliArt and standard top mounts I find both poor. The difference seems to be that the standard ones use a slightly softer rubber compound. Both use the same little bearing to carry the car.

I will next try a pillow ball set.

What type of noise is made when a top mount is too old?

I thought about the hks pillow ball upper mounts but someone that made the suspension for rally cars told me that they can be noisy as there is no rubber to absorb the vibration.

I think that they shouldn't be noisy as ther are tighted to the chassis.

Anyway I would like to have the comments of someone that have them fitted.

I want a firm ride but I don't want to have noises or other problems especially if the car is used on bad conditions back country roads.

What about engine and differential mounts?

About the problems of selecting the reverse and the 3rd gear,do you think that new ralliart engine bushings can help to solve the problem?

The sound produced by worn top mounts is a regular repeatable clonking sound easily noticed while driving on an quite rough surface. The sound is similar to that generated by a worn drop link for the stabilizer bar.
