    Can anyone tell me a good set of engine mounts to use in my 09’ ccsb Z71? I’m currently on my 3rd driver side mount. I have been using the GM replacement, but the rubber isn’t lasting a year.

    NNBS mounts are apparently shit, lots of guys want aftermarket mounts and I believe @Atomic is trying to get some poly ones made?

    I would love to get some poly ones, I wasn’t sure if they even existed. I’ve searched, but to no avail. Hell I’d be happy with a retrofit to the NBS mounts.

    I have been working on these for a while, but the GMT900 ones are much more complicated than the GMT800 ones (Which I also make in solid and poly) so I am not quite ready to release them yet until I tweak a few things. Next iteration should have it though!

    a lot of guys run solids and report almost no change in vibrations :shrug: you could just plate the sides of your oem mounts and that would pretty much be the same thing

    If your motor is vibrating enough that you are going to feel it there is a problem. Solid mounts are going to be more reliable in the long run.

    Motor runs smooth as can be, a little shake from the cam lope. I’m just tired of the CLUNK when I take off from a stop
