Oh it can go lower than that. I went metal to metal lol. By that time it sounded like the transmission was going to blow up. That mount sure has the ability to make different noises in the car as it goes out.Hi Steve, great picture!
It can be seen that the failsafe rubber tab is touching the steel of the mount so it is obviusly colapsed to it's lowest point. When you get a new one you'll see that there should be about a 10mm to 12mm gap there.
