Engine mounts

My mounts are bad.
So i can get one oem replacement from the local dealer for $120 or i can get all 3 for a lil over $70.

My question is it worth it to buy from the dealer or the aftermarket?
Quality? Longevity?

No doubt, pay the extra and get it from dealership. It will likely last the rest of the car's life at this point.

The aftermarket cheapo's will get you maybe 6 months.

Same answer, order OEM through an online source (Villlage, Tasca etc.) or from your local Dealer for good results.

The others you can TRY aftermarket, stock type some good some poor.

Performance mounts at any location are a separate story, doesn't apply here.
