I tried to order a TRZ transmission/driver mount from TheRPMstore, but they are out of stock. I'm not getting any response from Protege Garage. These are the only two vendors I know of to purchase this mount using PayPal.

I found a TRZ mount on Ebay for 75 and the seller will do overnight shipping. Need this in a hurry. Said that he had the mount on for 10k and the washer and bushing in the picture look intact.

What do you guys think? Should this be okay? I normally wouldn't buy a used mount, but the TRZ transmission mount looks to be pure metal everywhere. Should I go for it?

I don't think it'd be a problem. I'd rather have a used one so that way it's already broken in.

Dude, that's just the thing. Call me crazy, but when my JBR 88a RMM and especially the 80A passenger mount were freshly installed, I was loving the new vibes and sounds. Now that they have died away (plus the broken transmission mount I'm probably feeling) I was looking forward to recapturing some of that rawness.

Thanks for the input, purchased and waiting on a shipping confirmation. Build thread to hopefully follow soon. I've got enough parts on my car to make it somewhat interesting! Thanks!

Ah, it's pretty extreme, so hopefully you like it.

LOL you need to buy an older car and make it as raw as you want and be happy. I used to daily a car with polyurethane filled motor mounts, a loud exhaust, 2 front seats, 2 front door panels and nothing else. Girls hated it but I loved driving that loud, uncomfortable, fun mess haha

should be fine, and 10k really isn't that much.

I love my TRZ trans mount, but that's because I love trans noises.

Now if I can find something to replace my SU passenger mount to reduce vibes that would be fantastic... it shakes everything way to much with two TRZ mounts and a race PMM, it's obnoxious. Personally I don't see how anyone honestly "likes" the vibes, but then again everyone else has interiors that probably don't make as much noise / shake around.
