I got a bit of cash right now to spend on one of these mods. I'll have both in the near future but what to do first? I just can't make up my mind so maybe you guys can make the decision for me.

New mounts. DTS won't fix broken mounts.

Default Re: New mounts. and adjust snub bracket

I adjusted the vertical bracket down so it limits upward travel of the engine at the snub mount. I believe the bracket has four bolts that you loosen to adjust it up/dn.

Default Can you tell me the differences of the 2 types of Engine Mounts you have for sale for our cars?

one i'm assuming are for the S4 and the other for the rs4? Is there a big difference between the two?

the RS4 mounts are a bit stronger, but there is no "perfect" mount available...

Default RS4 is stiffer.

Generall better suited for higher horsepower cars. S4 mounts are fine for the stock setup.
