02svtf300 ^^ same here

I have a cfm lower for awile now and Vf Engineering passenger side and driver side mount. The passenger side now is good. But the driver side now I do not suggest, bad design.

When I installed it I couldn't even get the top center nut torque to spec because they only made it about a quarter inch deep so it rounded right off with the correct size 6 point socket

When I go to pull the motor and tranny. I'm going to have to b* to get another... but only if they'll Milll the nut deeper

SVTFocusOnMe You will notice it in the steering wheel. It will prob be slightly different for each car but I know in mine there is a slight rattle of something coming from inside the dash at low rpms. My drivers side mirror also vibrates at idle but stops as soon as you get moving in a gear. The mirror on the windshield also slightly does but not that bad.

It's also a little noisy but you have to figure the point of the mounts is to not lose power due to engine movement so stiffer mounts means there will be more vibration sent to the chassis.

Michael_Price1990 what vibrates like crazy? just the steering wheel? i have a 30 min drive to work and back daily.

SVTFocusOnMe It will vibrate a lot. If your worried about it ruining the comfort of you DD I would steer away from them. It only bothers me occasionally. Every other time I just think "because race car" and I feel better. Haha.

Michael_Price1990 When you replace all 3 mounts is the in car vibration pretty bad? or not really a big deal? ive considered switching myself. but ive always turned away when i read the warning for daily drivers and bad vibration

Steeda did replace the lower engine mount under warranty for him. They shipped the new replacement to us. We accepted it back for credit. Wesley used the store credit to upgrade to the CFM lower engine mount instead. He went with the stiffer race bushings.

The CFM lower engine mount uses one piece bushings on both sides. The bushings are much stronger for this reason. The CFM mount will last much longer. Bushings do wear, but no way should it only last a few months. It should be long time before someone needs to replace any bushings.

I seen a few of the VF and the Steeda mount where mainly on the transmission side the bushing will work itself out. We do not have this issue with our cfm one.
Yes CFM and steeda both helped me out big time still loving that new beefed up lower mount!! They are running a special now two steeda upper mounts and that CFM lower mount for only $400 I would buy from CFM agin such great customer service.

felixthecat Thats great to see companys are making right w/ their products, & trying to figure out why it failed.

tj@steeda Please email me at tim@steeda.com so that we can get some feedback on how/why these failed. We are always looking to improve our set-up and would like to look at your particular case and examine what may have happened.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,

TJ
