Tunedss86,
I would and are using poly replacement mount. If the car was just a weekend toy or track only I would use solid. JMO. Plus I'm getting too old not to have a little cushion. LOL By the way I like the way you are doing the frame work to the extra frame. Should make it alot easier to fab & weld thing together.
Good Luck!

go solid, then tune the suspension with softer springs and/or shocks to get the desired ride quality.

any flex in the chassis and body is just wasted motion that got away from the suspension.

86 MC SS- rough, but fixable. looks like something Dale Sr might have driven back to the transport after a race at Bristol.

Hi Tuned,

I recommend you read the sticky about body bushings.

Best,

I was talking to Mark @ SC&C about new front end kits and asked about body bushings.He doesent sell them,but he recommended polygraphite ones.I've only been out for a couple of short drives,but I've got no complaints so far.The car feels a lot tighter,the old bushings were overdue for replacement.
