Motor Mount Replacement Advice

Our 1996 Chrysler Concorde may be in need of motor mounts. Should I use the solid rubber variety, or the mushy (hydraulic) kind? I can actually get the mushy kind at NAPA for less than the solid variety.

Motor size is 3.5 L.

Thanks.

Use the hydraulic ones.

You will hate the solid ones (transmit noises and vibrations you do not want).

Upon further review, we may need sub-frame bushings as well.

Is Dorman the only aftermarket bushings available? I hear they are not that good, and I don't think Mopar makes them anymore.

I believe Polybushings makes polyurethane sub frame bushings for our cars.

Don’t know if they still have any. I talked to them probably 5 or more years ago, and they said they don’t make them anymore - only have them until what they have on the shelf are gone:

polyurethane FWD LH Mopar cradle mounts

You might need new cradle bushing bolts too. Dealer? Aftermarket? Come with the Dorman bushings (throw the bushings away)? I can’t remember where they are available now. (A quick look at Rock Auto shows that the bolts do come with the Dorman crap bushing set.)
