How many miles do you guys typically get on the stock ones before needing a swap. especially after spirited driving and such for many miles lol.
Thanks guys!
If your concerned about vibrations the solution might not be to replace with poly ones. Even the dogbone. Could be other variables. Misfires, low idle, mounts could be bad. Passenger side has fluid that can leak out.

Don't get me wrong I love having ply motor mounts, but they do increase vibrations.
