    Question Sub frame mounts

    What type of subframe mounts did everyone use, example part number or energy suspension? Having a hard time finding or can you use cab mounts?

    I used urethane mounts that came from Springs 'n Things but you can use most any brand. The F-body uses the same ones as '73 and up B-body with a similar isolated sub-frame, the listings just never mention it.

    If you want solid, Firm Feel has aluminum ones but they're more than double the price of urethane.

    I originally had a set of old Direct Connection cast steel one in my car that I bought waaaaaaaaaaaay back in the late '80's. Switched to urethane to give some noise, vibration and harshness isolation. Can't tell one iota of difference in handling, it's just a lot quieter and smoother than it was with the solid spacer

    Pretty sure someone is making the rubber ones now also. Personally I don`t like the ride harshness of the solid mounts but that`s up to you and what you like.

    I put the solid (metal) ones on my Volare wagon and it rode just fine. Definitely a more solid ride, it actually felt 'normal' compared to before. The cars prior to 1973 were all solid and that is good enough for me.
