I originally bought the PHR solid engine mounts but switched to the TRD. I have a buddy with a T78 that drag races and he is still using the stock mounts. He also said that when he switched to the solid mounts everything vibrated...way to loud. Also I was told that the solid mounts are really for race only purposes and not for daily driving. When I get ALL my parts from PHR and MVP I'll let you know immediately about the TRD mounts.

IM a lazy bastard. My left one is shot for over a year and it does that clicking thing every other day. TOday driving to work i noticed hearing the rubber make a "rubbery noise(dont ask, the only word i can think of now) when i would tap the brakes lightly going down a hill. Maybe ill do the trd one. Ranger you know the damage on it?

As you know, I have a major TRD fettish. A while ago I called Jeff Watson to order the TRD mounts. His advice was to only get them if I could tolerate more vibration in the cabin and up through the steering column. They are intended for a strictly racing application, according to Jeff. I chose to stay with stock motor mounts, despite the fettish.

My motor mounts were bad, so I swapped in the TRD ones. They were only ~$15ea. more than the stockers. I don't remember any huge difference between them and the stockers as far as vibration goes. It's definitely not noticable. Now I just need to find an upgraded Auto tranny mount that will handle the power.

I have the TRD mounts on my single turbo... and I wouldn't say that it's harsh at all. I don't have any reference because I bought the car with the single already on it... but I can honestly say that I am in no way bothered by any vibrations. It's as smooth as my bone stock 4Runner and my GFs Miata.

If you have the motor out I would put the TRD ones in.
