    have always run solid on driver side only and rubber. All solid seems to shake your teeth out all rubber you can crack the shaker when it hooks up....so...solid on driver and rubber on passenger to take out SOME of the rattle and rubber on tranny

    the rubber is difficult to COMPRESS....the solid is taking the brunt of the work. The rubbers are only to dampen the vibration. Never run a solid tranny mount unless you have motor plates (then i still wouldn't) i would rather bust up 5 tranny mounts than to have my tranny tail housing torn up!

    As said, I use solid mounts with a mid plate, if the engine is balanced in both weight & volumes and well built/blueprinted it's amazing how smooth they can be.

    And agree with Fbird 100% on NOT using a solid trans mount, I use a poly trans mount that's snugged very lightly with a 1/4 ratchet.
