460 Engine Mounts back to Homepage

Solid or Rubber?

A common question in regards to selecting the right 460 motor mounts for the 460 swap is whether to use solid steel or rubber mounts.

While often recommended, solid steel engine mounts are NOT optimal for use in daily-driver trucks. The reason for this is that solid steel engine mounts do not allow for any give or movement, resulting in cracked engine frames. While solid steel mounts can be appropriate for drag racing, they not appropriate for daily driver vehicles.

Unless you are drag racing, rubber mounts are the appropriate choice for you daily driver truck.
