Just one thing to check Dom is there a danger of wedging this to much as engine goes up aswell hence the bump stop underneath the metal bridging piece - so if it was wedged to hard it would prevent upwards travell.

Or am i just going nuts!

Just done mine, but could only force a piece of 2mm aluminium in there....the gap was only about 0.5mm.....did notice a slightly smoother change from 1st to 2nd gear which may have just been in my head, but other than that, no difference....

....spose mine must have been a good un anyway, or is it worth forcing a 2mm piece in the other side?Unsure

Justin you think too much Roll eyes

Upwards movement is unlikely and the mushroom thing is there more as a precaution

I'm gonna have to do something like this...

I've got a full set of gp n mounts on my 205, but the 306 top mounting arm still has loads of play..

What's the purpose of the bit that goes over the top of the mount??

Cheers

My mounts look a lot like nwphoto's, very little gap between the chassis and the rubber buffer.

Will chocking it still make a difference?

Are you not still suffering the same problems with your exhaust? Is it worth doing?

So Dom,

If I find that the body under my mount is cracked, can any garage do the welding, or will they refuse to weld?

Thanks mate,

Stan. Smile

Hmm, I've had two Rallyes and the gap between the mount and body have been minimal. Are you sure you lot have the correct insulators?

Oh, and to cure the problem completely - stop being boy racers racing away from traffic lights in first! Razz RazzRazz LOL

just seems everyone with a big gap has cracked mounting holes....a crack at the mounting hole will allow the rest of the mounting point to spread slightly
