If the VF ones work then just stick with those. So installing this will fix my horrible clunking sound/pop. It's really weird and sounds horrible. (just bought the car, new at stick)

VF are some of the best mounts out there. but another option are the Massive ones. I think they cost less than the VF but still provide a good rear dog bone mount.

"So installing this will fix my horrible clunking sound/pop" It may, it depends on if the mount is the cause. pop the hood, turn the car on using the E-brake get out and now open the TB by hand. how much rotation does the motor do when you rev? if the motor moves more than an inch or so then its likely a bad motor mount. this often leads to the passenger mount also going bad early.

This thread however is not to diagnose or even identify what mount to get. Rather it is a "How To". You can get help identifying specifics and other questions / problems with better results if you post a new thread or find one that is more accurate to your questions.

Alright thanks for your reply. I just recently found out I'm located near a Fswerks shop. I might just take it there to install the Vf Part mentioned in this thread.

It up to you, takes just a few min and fairly basic tools to swap out the rear mount. not sure what the fswerks shop would charge you for installation. Not to mention you already found a great how to, to follow.
