What's the consensus on these lower mounts? Necessary modification for a SVT?

In terms of performance, or as preventative maintenance?

Wesley4x4 purchase the steeda mount from us. His mount failed only after a few months of use. He did purchased the upper Steeda mounts at that same time from us when he bought the Steeda lower mount.

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.

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

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.

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
