If you have the tools you can drill out the rivets to separate the metal plates, then get just the rubber parts of the mounts and re-rivet the mounts back together.

I had a guy install these on my car along with the trans mount and It shakes like my wheels aren't balanced after 60mph. Any guesses? Anyone have these poly mounts installed and what do you think? I'm seriously going to have my wheels checked for balance first but it was fine before all this...

Many people who install poly mount complain have complaints about vibrations after installation. Its the reason why a lot of people prefer OEM rubber mounts.

I have poly mounts. You feel more engine and driveline vibration than you do with rubber mounts but they are stronger. Its a trade off strength for a bit of comfort but it doesn't bother me.

This isn't a little comfort. This is my whole body shaking like my tires are shot vibration if I go over 60... Is this normal then? I should also point out I have panhard bar and lCA installed as well but I think the worst is from the mounts themselves. If I put it In neutral while driving I loose a ton of vibration.

An update i found some issues with my shocks up front not being installed correctly and not compressing so it was making my new mounts seem even worse. I'm still having the new oem mounts put back on after the suspension fix so if Anyone wants to buy a set of poly mounts with 600 miles or less on them let me know.

That is for the entire bracket. you can buy just the rubber parts from most parts stores. Then you have to drill out the rivets on the factory mounts change the rubber pieces and bolt back together.

RockAuto has them for ~$50 each with the bracket, minus the 5% discount code from the sponsor/vendor forum on these boards,

Well I had my tires balanced and found one has a small belt issue in it. My shocks should be fixed but it seems my front end is higher than the rear by way of the gap I see by the fenders. I'm getting annoyed with this vibration. My tires are good tread but car sat still for 4 years or so before so possible my tires aren't good. The shop said it only seemed like one could use replacing. I just want a comfortable ride and none of this happened till the mounts. Frustrated. Guess its on to buying a new pair again and wasting more money again on another swap.
