Today I replaced my worn transmission mount bushing (the bigger one) with the one that IPD provides. I also noticed that the small one is cracked, but IPD does not provide a replacement. How do you guys cope with that/? I don't want to put a stock one on there because that one will most definitely crack, just like this one did. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Re: Transmission mount bushing (small) question (tomedkaz)

Let it go...Word has it that if both bushings were replaced with poly the vibrations are insane. You could experiment by getting a tube of windshield adhesive and filling the void around the small bushing, allow it to cool and install...

Yea I did notice a bit more vibrations when I put on the bigger bushing, but it's nothing to be concerned about.
I think I might fill the small one with polyurethane.

I had the complete QBM lower trans mount on my car and the vibrations sucked. I mean, this car isn't a Mazda Miata when it comes to shifting, so what I did was combine the large OEM piece with the small polyurethane piece. And now, I don't have any vibrations at all--this with the QBM strut mod done, albeit on a OEM Volvo upper mount. The car is just butter with this setup, I regret nothing.
