DEA motor mounts any good?

Post by srimes » Fri Jan 27, 2012 11:57 am

PO put in a POS anchor upper torque strut, which promply cracked when I tried to torque it to spec after filling it. Only mounts I've seen online are anchor and DEA ($19 + shipping). Are the DEA mounts any good?

I may just pull one from a junkyard...

I haven't heard any reviews yet, anchor seems to be the only known crappy brand at this point.

I've got a new one from napa for sale that's not plastic, it's polished though.

No, the previous owner (PO) put it in. I found an OK stock mount at PnP and put that in to replace it.

I also wonder about the DEA mounts for sale on RockAuto ... The mopar ones are rediculous price and reviews don't go much on anchor ... Maybe worth a try
