    Engine Mounts..

    So after my recent service a few weeks ago Holden has told me that my engine mounts are weak and need replacing, I've asked for a price to replace and have been told $690.. Do you guys think this is too much or a normal price? Cheers 2006 V6 Thunder S Ute

    SIDI engine mounts

    Engine Mounts for WH Caprice

    I have a WH Caprice (V8) and need to change the engine mounts. Is it worthwhile to pay the extra and get the genuine mounts which I think are hydraulic or will after-market rubber ones be just as good? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks, Kerry
