Opinions on solid rear mounts

My '73 2002 that was built for serious autox competition by Korman had them and it was obnoxious. For track use in my opinion.

I have the solid mounts & hardware (these lower the subframe) and the matching differential carrier with white/hard urathane bushings that will provide for better alignment with the lowered subframe. Everything I have is from Korman motors and in excellent condition/low miles. I can forward photos if interested, but these items are pictured on Korman's website.

I used these... They are great in my opinion. Buying the stock mounts and then having to buy the ireland inserts left a bad taste in my mouth. Why spend more money on 2 parts that are not as solid as one part that costs less??? These dont squeek and they flat out do the job.

AKG is notorious for copying other's designs, and that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. To correctly use these you'll need to use the old factory mount sleeve, burn out all the rubber.

Seems simple enough, inserts for street, and solid for racing. If there was more reason to IE would be making these again.

Maybe im a little late in the game here. Iv only been 02'ing for about 3 years now. Iv never seen IE offer these. Or anyone else for that matter. I just saw them and did the math. About $100 for new stock subframe mounts + $25 for the ireland inserts = $125. $80 for these... Cheaper, and its all one piece. I dont know im not a pro but it made cents to me. Copy, original, I dont give a shit as long as it works well.

I have solid rear subframe mounts and urethane diff mount bushings and I agree with others - YOU WILL HEAR A LOT OF NOISE! You will think your differential bearings are bad, you will think your rear wheel bearings are bad, you will think you need to rebuild your halfshafts even if you just re-did them 6 months ago - you get the picture. Pretty brutal for a daily drive and that is what I have on my daily drive. Nothing a pair of earplugs or noise cancelling earphones wont fix! Performance wise absolutely recommended for track.

... i don't even think they're essential for the track...

Honestly, on the race car, I get a better sense of when the

diff's getting tired, but while it does take a set just a bit better,

it's not like it's even worth a tenth. Well, maybe 1 or 2...

In the list of things 'ya gotta do' I'd put it in the bottom 1/3.

After seat, brake booster delete, dual masters, rear discs, blah blah blah...
