Rear motor mount suggestions?

Been learning a lot on here, lately. Seems that it would be a good idea to upgrade the stock squishy rear motor mount.

So...there are options. Any suggestions?

The Cobb unit looks nice. CFM seems to make an adjustable and non-adjustable. There are others that I can't remember.

Any advantage to going adjustable instead of non-adjustable?

Which one did you choose and why?

Is there a way to edit the title of the thread? I meant to say REAR motor mount.

To start, there are tons of threads on this subject already.

What kind of improvement are you looking for? I have the E-RMM. Gives a subtle improvement while keeping it oem and on the cheaper side. If you want some crazy ass solid rmm because race car then, any one of the after market ones is going to be good. Just read up, some are stiffer than others. As a reminder: stage 2 ST mounts will not fit the N/A focus.

What are your plans? Most people that do the rear mount also do the passenger,
or upper mount...while doing just the rear mount is an improvement, its only doing
part of the job...but adding the.upper adds.some cabin vibes which some people dont like.

If you do plan on doing upper...dont get a rear mount that adds more vibes like the cobb,
add one like the emm or cfm.

I just installed the cfm and while more expensive then the emm,
It has actually made the car run and idle with less vibes then stock...while
noticable.improvements...much less wheel hop, crisper shifting dct...and its
Adjustible...up to 5 more inserts can be added (cfm claims even with all inserts in, cabin
vibes are minimal)...going to test that out, but I think the cfm is the best overall rmm
on the market due to its adjustibility and outstanding quality, and i think it should last the
Life of the car...the emm is still a stock mount which may become softer over time like
most oem mounts.

I went with this:
FSWERKS Polyurethane OE Mount Insert - Ford Focus 2012-2014

it is very effective and a fraction the cost of the other mounts.

If it's a lithium / petroleum grease based I see there... it will eat EPDM rubber (black on this picture) with time... NOT COMPATIBLE!


Just saying!


Silicone grease is acceptable for EPDM nothing else
Lithium grease can be use on poly...

Quote:
Petroleum based greases will actually eat a bushing away so this is why it is so crucial to use the right grease. You can actually be doing more harm than good by greasing your bushings with the wrong kind of grease.

White Lithium grease (all weather marine grade) was only used for the polyurethane mount, the little bit you see smudged on the rubber bushing was cleaned away,

That FSWerks piece looks like the one! I am not planning on extensively modifying my Titanium. Overall, I am very happy with most things. My performance car is my 600hp Olds 442. But I do want to address some of the factory shortcomings. So I don't see a need for a "performance" motor mount - just something that will correct the squishy rubber in the factory mount. I have noticed wheel hop several times during some spirited driving in the Focus.

Now...should I also do the upper mount?
