Motor mount quality...

Post by Eddystone » Tue Jan 08, 2019 11:07 am

I've read around and been around, so I understand that OEM Volvo parts are the best (especially for the mount near the pulley behind the right front wheel), but I need to ask one more time: Any recommendations regarding any of the various mounts for non-OEM brands? I'm guessing that if I need the hydraulic mounts, I will probably go with Hutchinsons.

I assume FCP will honor its lifetime warranty, and I would only be out the effort to replace them if they go bad, but even the FCP kits include parts I have seen some bad reviews on.

In general, I don't understand why these third world part manufacturers (China in particular) think going with cheap low quality rubber is a good business plan. I guess it's just manufacture as cheaply as possible and go for volume.

MVS DIYers will go with HUTCHINSON or LEMFÖRDER brands for quality and relative price.

Moog doesn't make any of these motor mounts. Neither does TRW. Also don't see them from Delphi anywhere.

I have used Moog and TRW for suspension parts.
