DIY Flip Dog Bones 90*
Posted 03 December 2012 - 03:59 AM
Step 2: Move dogbones out of the way and reinstall bolt
Step 3: Get out some WD-40 and get to sprayin'
Step 4: Tighten the bolt as seen in the picture above and it should flip 90* quite easily, and this will be the final result

edit: I used dish soap as the lube. And freezing it helped with breaking apart the small amount of glue they put in there. I had bought new ones and then found out about this trick. So, I did it to the new ones. It worked great. The engine sits still instead of flopping around so much.

This will also help if you sometimes have a "clunk" when you go from park to reverse or park to drive. The GTP was clunking. I noticed the motor was flopping in the wind. So I flipped them. The mounts were 160k miles and worn out. This cured that.
Amen to that being my driveway slopes down.

Okay, I've searched high and low and cannot for the life of me find the square dog bone mounts except for stupid aftermarket poly. My passenger mount broke clean in half as it is with the stock rubber. Last thing I need is a more firm mount, but I do need new square torque strut mount bushings. Anybody have a part number or link? Not even RockAuto sells them.
I had looked into this too and you have to buy the whole assembly:
I ended up just getting the poly's from zzp. The vibration is a noticeable at first and only at idle, but you get used to it

Welcome to 2013 bro.
Didn't even see the date. Not like this info is outdated anyway. Still only available in the whole assembly. Just thought I'd try to help someone

I was always wondering what that clunk sound was, now I def got to do this this weekend.

Wouldn't silicone spray be better for this as a lubricant, given that it won't displace water (water-displacement 40) and dry out the rubber, causing quicker wear? Just a thought.
