I'm not really sure what I'm asking. For my car I can either get hydraulic
or rubber mounts and I honestly don't know which kind I should get. To me it
seems like the hydraulic ones would dampen the vibration more but it would
also allow more movement, but I'm not sure.
Yeah thats kinda how hydraulic mounts work. However they dont seem to
last as long. They like to rip open and spill oil on the ground. I like
a more positive feel from my engine so I know when and if its running
A lot of the primary engine mounts on GM engines
are hydraulic (probably better to call them "oil filled").
They seem to work fine, some of them take an
extra amount of beating and don't last that long.
Cadillac's are famous for splitting their front
engine mount apart. I haven't seen too many
failures on the other car lines.
It's not dogbone style mounts you are talking
about, is it? If so, there were dogbone mounts
that came from the aftermarket that looked like
little shock absorbers. They were crap...I'd go
with the solid original factory style ones.
