Toyota Aftermarket Motor Mounts - Any Brands Any Good?
« on: March 15, 2018, 03:41:19 PM »
Does anyone have 1st hand experience?  I've read even Beck/Arnley are crap.  OEMs are pricey.  Thanks!

in general, yes.

but read reviews as well, as long as there are plenty out there. good luck.

but i'd stick with toyota, or TRD, for those vehicles and lexus.

now hyundai and kia? generic, aftermarket, and OEM are all the same crap, just packaged differently.  :P

Ha!  I figured if there was a good aftermarket part, you'd know.  Thanks for chiming in.  Often a particular brand will be the same as OEM for a lot less money.  I'm finding motor mounts to be like CV axles though.  OEM or bust.  This car has ~180k miles on it.  I'd buy a cheap, low mileage pull, if I could find one locally.

Maybe Turboderf will chime in, Toyota mechanic for a very long time.
However sounds like you have your mind made up to go the cheap way out

I haven't made up my mind to do shi*, but a used, low mileage pull is still OEM.  Thanks for being so charming  :roll:

used car, high mileage. i'm with you there...hard to justify sometimes spending $250.00 on a part for a car i'm not keeping, or on a car worth $400.00 no matter what's done to it.

so i hit the junkyard for that stuff, but i would think that motor mounts are either:

**already missing.

**a nightmare to remove from a junkyard example.



but a lot of good oem parts are stupid cheap on eBay...

a good example: our local junkyard sells a brake caliper for $17ish out the door, customer removes it. i went last week to grab one, and it was messed up and the wheel lugs were stripped out so the wheel wouldn't come off. only car there where the part would work.

i went on eBay, and got a rust free brake caliper shipped out of tennessee for $20.00. with a 6 month warranty. and perfect pads to boot, which i didn't need.

so check eBay as well. avoid northern rust-heavy states like pennsylvania.



i have to add, though...i have advance auto lifetime cv axles in my 1988 crx. 5+ years, no issues.

and my advice may suck. i want to lower and turbo everything i drive, and run infiniti wheels on my honda and mustang rims on my lexus. :)

That ain't happening on a newer model Honda.  I didn't buy new though.  I bought an OEM pull and had it rebuilt at Constant Velocity of Ocala for ~$75.  Honda wants some crazy money for newer model CV Axles and the aftermarkets are shi*.

Why are you replacing?  Just aged or are they going bad from power takeoff?

On acceleration from stop I'm getting some noise, worse in cold.  It appears to be the right engine mount, which is a common failure point.

Reason I ask was, if it was breaking early, a cable strap from motor to around the frame was used to stop overtravel which broke the mounts.

It made it nearly 180K miles.  Found a used one for $25 shipped that's supposed to only have ~80K miles.  If it gets me through 2 more years, I'll be happy.
