Anyone running these?:
http://www.cbperformance.com/catalog.asp?ProductID=643

I was looking for a good compromise between strength, noise, and cost and these seemed like the hot ticket. I don't want to go with solid mounts because it's a street car and they are too freaking noisy and vibrate like crazy. I don't want to go with normal urethane because it's brittle and breaks in tranny mounts (especially the front), and also transfers allot of noise and vibration. I'd prefer not to do stock rubber because I want good hook up and the engine is going to be pretty big (not sure yet, but probably 19~ or maybe a little over 2 liter).
I wanted something a little heavier duty than stock because I'm going with a pretty big engine, but since it's going to be street driven I want to sacrifice as little ride comfort as possible. What do you think?

i used german mounts and the front mount broke but the 2 in back were still good...so i replaced all of them with the heavy duty mounts from CIP1..they are guaranteed until like 200 hp so i had to buy all 3...
the only problem is that they are louder then the stock german mounts but i also don't run carpeting so i could realy tell a difference in noise level

peace out

nose cone mount from CB's is really good...have gone through two sets of rears, and am still keeping the front mount in action. I have wheel hop, but it is def. not due to the rhino mounts. The front has lasted, rears went out quickly, Bill is right though, but for overall affordability go with urethane torsion bar/spring plate upgrade and urethane mounts.

I'm putting the front one in on my bus. seems to fit good, but I need to by custom nuts or some kind of custom wrench to tighten it to the frame. There's not much room to wrench on the nuts because they are so close to the bulky mount and the tranny support is also in my way. I'll figure it out and give an update when I rip on my bus. (about 170 HP and a built tranny). I'm running a straight axle kit and also using rear tranny strap with repro german stock mounts in the rear. I am also trying to fit a front tranny strap on, but the one I got is for a bug and I need to make some mods to get it on.

Those CB mounts sure look like urethane. You gotta remember that there are different durometer ratings for urethane. Some are quite soft and others are almost as hard as a rock.

I tried a set , took them out in the first week , they transfered as much noise as solid mounts . I gave them to a freind who put them in his street buggy with a 1835 , broke the rears in less than a month ! Run the heavy duty , green dot German mounts , they will not break as easy as the urethane mounts . TROY



a-train , use 15mm head stud nuts on the nose cone studs , more thread hold , and room to get a wrench on them !

I like the intermediate mount combined with German rear mounts. My intermediate is slightly padded.

Strengthens and stabilizes without adding too much noise and vibration, but you'll always add some when tightening things up.

I'm glad I'm not the only one!
I believe I found a solution that could help others. Please note I did not remove the transmission when I changed out the mounts. 1967 Ghia.

My initial install was a miserable failure. I tried to re-use the nuts from my worn out red urethane mounts ( I was warned about those mounts!). I couldn't thread them.
I had Acorn nuts that I thought were metric. Turns out they were 7/16 threads. Furthermore, I had the ground strap on the nosecone lug Shocked

I sort of knew all along this was going to be trouble as I could not properly torque the acorn nuts. I was pretty confidant the ground strap set up was wrong. But again, clearance was the issue. It wouldn't fit the frame lug due to the ledge on the Rhino mount. It's just too close to the stud hole.


My solution was to buy 1.5 x 10 " stainless steel "coupler" nuts 30mm long.
It "stands-off" the mount far enough so you can get a socket on it get it to the proper torque. I mounted the ground strap to the other end of the coupler nut.
