    Need to replace my transmission mount. Anyone have any experience with urethane mounts?

    Do they result in a noticeable increase in noise being transmitted into the interior of the car?

    I’m running the urethane mount. I noticed no change is cabin noise with the switch. The mount is definitely better than the stock rubber one.

    i got some Teflon grease and put a light coat on contact surfaces no noise at all did to all urathane bushings used. actually have used the grease on some thread and other contact surfaces as it is anti corrosive. used on my daily driver truck when i rebuilt front end connections are still good after 4 years and indiana salt

    I have Energy Suspension engine and transmission mounts. Never heard any noises from them. Also have poly swaybar bushings, but at least they have zerks on them so they can be greased. They've never squeaked either.

    I only use polyurethane for mounting, not for anything that rotates or articulates. It will eventually squeak when used for that purpose.

    Poly engine and trans mounts. No problems, stiffens things up nice

    You guys are saying you saw no increase in drivetrain noise being transmitted into the interior?

    Right...I heard no additional noise or change after installing poly mount.

    I think it actually improved. The stick on my trans used to noticeably flop around. Not so with poly mount.
