I'm about to do the control arm bushings and ball joints on the 9C1, and I want to replace the pass engine mount. I have searched some, but found nothing obvious. Are there any polyurethane motor mounts for 94-96 b bodies? Thanks

No per say but the standard energy suspension poly mounts replacements are what I used. you have to take the original clam shells apart that hold the rubber inside, but it is really easy.

download this catalog http://www.energysuspension.com/assets/files/2010-energy-suspension-catalog.pdf go to page 17 if I remember right the ones in our cars are four bolt. so part number 3.1116. Advance Auto or Autozone should have them in stock. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/pa...formance/_/N-93yrp?itemIdentifier=353700_0_0_ The G or the R at the end of the part number is the color.

I know it's a super old thread, but I wanted to ask you what your impressions are on the ride quality of the poly motor mounts.

Did you use the poly trans mount as well?

How bad are the vibrations? Good for daily driver use?

I have poly on both Trans and motor mounts and they work fine. "Ride quality" is affected by so much more, but can't say I noticed any negatives going with the Poly mounts. I have no problem recommending poly for anything including suspension parts. The only place I don't have them is on the body, but I have heard the body bushings can make the ride a little harsher.

As for the motor mounts, if you decide to do these check this thread....

Post 7 has some pics of when I did mine. They include instructions with their mounts and have you use the included tie wraps to hold the clam shell together but they were useless. I just clamped them tight with some bolts while I used a few tack welds to hold it all together. You will need to get a little creative to get the mounts unbolted from the frame...it was a pita to do.

My $02 if using the poly motor mounts is to stay with a OEM rubber tranny mount. I have the "black" Energy Suspension mounts and OEM tranny mount

After having header fitmeant issues it turns out that the cheap parts store replacements were taller than my old tired stockers but still shorter than new ES poly's. The ES poly solved my header to frame clearance issues. Also I tore a stock rubber trans mount in two with a bad launch and wheel hop at the track so I run poly there too.

As for install the tie wraps held it together just fine, since once you bolt it to the rame the tie wraps are no longer doing it. I found a non-ratcheting flip head socket to be the best tool for getting inside the frame.
