I've been meaning to do this for a while - my stock 4 speed transmission mounts were flat like day old soggy cereal. I had previously filled them with urethane, but the rubber underneath was just too far gone, and they disitigrated on my last off road venture leaving my transmission sitting directly on the cross-member - I'm not kidding when I say METAL-ON-METAL.... disturbing to say the least. I abhor the design of these crappy EA81 mounts, and I was loath to spend $38 each on new mounts. I found some cheap aftermarket direct fit ones for about $10 at rockauto.com only to get a phone call from them saying they were out of stock, and they called the manufacturer.... who is also out of stock and has no ETA for more. That left me with little alternative but to design something new :grin:

Here it is - the path to transmission mount enlightenment - EA82 mounts for the EA81:

(lots of pictures and write up on the subject)

I might have found the correct pictures to that link in my foggy archives.

 

I didn't take these though. ALL rights "preserved" and all that....
