I have just bought some used Tuffmounts , Aussie company ( https://www.tuffmounts.com.au/ ) Quality looks pretty good build quality wise, just thought I would mention them just to suggest another alternative for you. I haven't fitted them yet as I am going to wait till I need to. My standard mounts are still good even with 670 horse testing them.

Never heard of revshift breaking. Only ones I would run. Zero issues with fitment for either set of longtubes Ive ran. And on of the few companies that make a matching trans mount.

The previous owner of my car installed Hinson engine and trans mounts. They're a bit too harsh for my taste was going to switch to Revshift. I haven't seen them break but I haven't really searched.

My issue with searching on here sometimes is that some of the posts are 10 or more years old lol. So I do what to believe ir wiGhts made anymore.

What rev shift ones are you running? I have a (new gm) stock trans mount with their Poly insert and don't mind it. I'd even entertain going for their actual trans mount

Is Revshift only on facebook? I've seen some of their parts on tuner websites but don't see a dedicated website. Thanks.
No, they have a website. Ive ordered from there before
But i dont particularly like their design for motor mounts. Their mounts arent interlocked. Its just Polly holding your motor in lol

Are the vette mounts any different? They dont look it. Other than price.
Top pic is C5, bottom is pedders both are liquid filled. C5 has that extra stem on one side the pedders is cut off on one side. The pedders mounts are made by a Australian company called mackay seems you can’t buy mounts from pedders anymore but you can still find mackay Monaro mounts on eBay.

Are you pretty much stock? Im juat looking to tighten up the car a bit. I mean id do stock mounts again. But for like 30 more bucks i could spring for the whitelines. This is where im stuck.

The Hinson mounts tighten the car up a bit but not worth the added vibration imo, if possible would replace is the steering rack bushing to tighten up the car it’s only about 20$ and it was worth it for me.

They are the most expensive option out there, but Torque Master is the way to go. I replaced a set of Ultra Mounts with them and the vibrations are basically gone, but the motor is still solid.

Yhe steering rack bushings are currently in the cart lol. Im waiting on my lovells rear springs then im ordering koni inserts for the fromt along with lovells springs. Ive replaced pretty much every bushing front and rear with whiteline Poly. So maybe ill save my self some cash and just go back to stock mounts.

I've had Hinsons on the orange car for quite a while. I recently switched from stock height to 3/8" shorter. I've never found the drivetrain vibrations to be a whole lot different than stock. The suspension bushings made more of a noticeable change than the engine mounts ever did.

I feel like i get some excessive engine movement. I can feel it in the trans. And i have a brand new gm trans mount with the poly insert. Plus all new bushings in the rear end including diff mount. And all new bushings in the front end. I mean the car has 136k on it. So im just gpi g theough and replacing what i can here and there. I do have a 1 piece driveshaft, and get some vibration from that. So im trying to be picky anout what i get for motor mounts.
